Building the Responsive Campus offers a critique of modern academe, as well as a proposal for making campuses more effective - that is, better at meeting the clients' or customers' needs. The author addresses the problems that many academic institutions have today in clinging to the practices and organization of the past. He argues that institutions of higher learning are in demand of dramatic organizational change. The book takes a data driven approach using research derived from ethnographies, case studies, and interviews carried out by the author over the past fifteen years. By outlining the many problems in organization that colleges and universities face today, the author hopes to reveal workable solutions.
