A radical blueprint for reinventing American higher educationAmerica’s research universities consistently dominate global rankings but may be entrenched in a model that no longer accomplishes their purposes With their multiple roles of discovery teaching and public service these institutions represent the gold standard in American higher education but their evolution since the nineteenth century has been only incremental The need for a new and complementary model that offers broader accessibility to an academic platform underpinned by knowledge production is critical to our well being and economic competitivenessMichael M Crow president of Ari Dr Crow not only writes about making college in reach of thousands of students who other wise wouldn't have it but explains how it's been done at Arizona State through the New American University Since the book was published ASU has partnered with EdX designed at Harvard and MIT to establish the Global Freshman Academy Never in the history of man have so many people particularly those with little or no academic credentials suddenly received the opportunity to get a chance to obtain a moderately priced higher education It seems to me ASU and EdX should be nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize for opening up a chance for a better life through education for those who never had a shot at such a marvelous life changing opportunity Robert A Reilly

Designing the New American UniversityRian whose research focus is the American research university―examine the emergence of this set of institutions and the imperative for the new model the tenets of which may be adapted by colleges and universities both public and private Through institutional innovation say Crow and Dabars universities are apt to realize uniue and differentiated identities which maximize their potential to generate the ideas products and processes that impact uality of life standard of living and national economic competitiveness Designing the New American University will ignite a national discussion about the future evolution of the American research universit In his introductory chapters Dr Crow speaks of the functions of a research university and one of the elements was the need to include a larger segment of the population regardless of financial ability and its role in educating undergraduatesUnfortunately the book is only about the research aspect of its charge I attended a small liberal arts school and I always felt that big universities had world renowned faculty members who never taught undergraduates because of the edict publish or perish I was hoping that Dr Crow would explain how ASU could improve undergraduate education He pays lip service to the concept in his introductory remarks but doesn't devote even a chapter to it This would indicate that undergraduate education is a low priority at ASUHe also spent considerable verbiage at the start explaining how education was the key to class mobility and how important it was to make college accessible to students with the ability to do college work However he didn't consider this a big enough priority to explain how he planned to do this I taught in Arizona for twenty years and the state is extremely reluctant to fund education I was hoping Dr Crow would offer a solution to this but he didn'tI found the last two chapters pedantic and irrelevant I never buy a book and skip part of it but this book was badly incomplete I did scan them to see if he said anything worthwhile but was disappointedI gave it three stars instead of one because it is extremely well written and provides a lot of information about the research aspect of a university
