Description

The second edition of Organizational Theory in Higher Education is a comprehensive and accessible treatment of organizational theory and higher education administration. Noted scholar Kathleen Manning offers a fresh take on the models and lenses through which higher education can be viewed by presenting a full range of organizational theories, from traditional to current. Chapters discuss the disciplinary foundation, structure, metaphor, assumptions, characteristics, and other elements of each organizational theory and conclude with cases highlighting practical applications. Questions for discussion are provided at the end of each chapter and embedded in the cases to assist the reader in making connections to their practice. Manning's rich, interdisciplinary treatment enables readers to gain a full understanding of the perspectives that operate on a college campus and ways to adopt effective practice in the context of new and continuing tensions, contexts, and challenges.ã New to this Edition: revised chapters with updated material and new references that reflect current higher education issues including climate change; a new chapter on Institutional Theory, an expanded Feminist and Gendered chapter, and an enhanced Spirituality chapter; new cases throughout to address contemporary issues, and a broader range of institutional types including Historically Black and Hispanic-Serving institutions and 2-year institutions; additional theoretical topics including critical race theory, queer theory, and contemplative practices; ã ã ã updated and enhanced questions for discussion and recommended readings.
