The University

Drawing on 11 years as dean of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences at Harvard University, Henry Rosovsky offers a wise and witty view of America's colleges and universities; how they are run and the challenges they face, with special consideration to each of their "owners"--students, faculty, alumni, trustees, and others.

About the Author

Henry Rosovsky is an economic historian, specializing in East Asia, and Harvard University administrator.


"An extraoridnary gift for discerning major issues. . . . Mr. Rosovsky tackles the big public issues about postsecondary education today-curriculum and the dread canonicity, tenure with its potential stagnation, research versus teaching, the admissions process in elite institutions-in set pieces that are unfailingly informative." -- Linda Bradley Salamon - New York Times Book Review
