Uitgebreide omschrijving

This volume consists of original essays by academic leaders and scholars connected to Clark Kerr's life and work. He was arguably America's most significant higher education thinker and public policy analyst in the last 50 years of the 20th century and renowned globally. However, little thoughtful attention has been devoted to assessing the whole of his work. Some commentators misunderstand the man as well as his ideas. The California Master Plan for Higher Education of 1960 was one of his famous undertakings, as was his part in shaping the multi-campus University of California towards global eminence. He coined the word "multiversity" to describe what he called the "uses" of the university, but began to think it had become much too "multi". Some of his most important work was as director of the Carnegie Commission on Higher Education and the Carnegie Council on Policy Studies in Higher Education, which laid the foundation for sophisticated policy-making.
