The Innovative University

From The American Council on Education

The American Council on Education is now offering a free PDF of a new white paper, The Innovative University: Changing the DNA of Higher Education From the Inside Out.

The paper explores the issues driving the drop in the percentage of young people with a postsecondary degree as compared to previous generations. It notes that university leaders face many new challenges, such as disruptive technologies, and calls for institutions to be innovative and focused when moving forward.

Authored by Henry J. Eyring and Clayton M. Christensen and supported by Lumina Foundation for Education, the paper is the first in a series entitled Making Productivity Real: Essential Readings for Campus Leaders. Eyring, vice president for advancement at Brigham Young University – Idaho, and Christensen, the Robert and Jane Cizik Professor of Business Administration at Harvard (MA), initially presented the paper at ACE’s 93rd Annual Meeting in Washington, DC, and they will release a book on the subject later this year.
