Abstract

In this essay the author views a collection of scholarship as a source of lessons related to institutional practice and considers how institutional planners and other administrative leaders can use such ideas. The collection includes “Balancing Acts: Dilemmas of Choice Facing Research Universities,” by Jonathan Cole; “Crafting Strategy,” by Henry Mintzberg; portions of the book In Over Our Heads: The Mental Demands of Modern Life, by Robert Kegan; “Collegiality: Toward a Clarification of Meaning and Function,” by James Bess; and “On the Nature of Institutional Research and the Knowledge and Skills It Requires,” by Patrick Terenzini. Although the author draws from experience at one research university, the conclusions may prove useful to those who plan for the future of other higher education institutions.
