MetadataShow full item record
This report compiles two essays by former Governor James B. Hunt Jr. and business leader Thomas J. Tierney. Both lay out in succinct fashion the requirements of both the nation and the states for new and higher levels of performance from America’s colleges and universities. The authors are not theorists writing from an ivory tower. Quite the contrary, both are national leaders and draw from their extensive experience in civic life, politics, and business. The essays by two of America’s most perceptive and influential leaders are valuable maps for charting our course through the critical economic and educational challenges and opportunities of this new century.
