Summary
""Pasque challenges higher education leaders to speak d̀angerous truths' that disrupt the traditional policy and power dialogues that can hinder progress and lead to a new future where higher education benefits society in just and humane ways, Her analysis of leaders' speeches and dialogues about the public good reveal underlying assumptions or paradigms that guide leaders' thinking and help us rethink whose voices and narratives count. Pasque boldly asks us to embrace marginalized voices as well as to match our rhetoric to action."--Adrianna Kezar, Associate Professor for Higher Education, University of Southern California" ""Pasque has created a powerful and persuasive analysis of the multiple frames of reference used by powerbrokers, aka l̀eaders' in higher education. Her four-dimensional paradigm of belief systems used by leaders allows the reader to understand why people of good will, when faced with the same data set, can come to dramatically different conclusions about the relationship between post secondary institutions and the larger democratic society. In addition to identifying this problem, she has also offered a t̀ricuspid' solution which will make all of us more sophisticated when we address the significant issues facing our institutions today."--Jane Fried, Professor, Department of Counseling and Family Therapy, Central Connecticut State University" "Throughout this book, Pasque argues that leaders cannot afford to be complacent in this climate of educational inequity and to let dominant arguments about higher education prevail. She explores various leaders' competing frames of reference and worldviews of higher education's relationship with society as found in the literature--including over 193 articles and speeches by prominent university presidents, policy makers, and scholars--and discussion at a national policy conference series in order to increase our understanding of the issues and implications of various perspectives.
