Synopsis

While many books have criticized higher education for an apparent bias towards leftist agendas, John R. Campbell takes a different approach. Through the compilation of 65 vignettes that peek behind the boardroom door, the author focuses on the bureaucratic and organizational stagnation that has led to "dry rot" in the ivory towers of academia. Dry Rot in the Ivory Tower presents substantive evidence of the problems that exist in universities today, and provides the author's prognosis for change. He addresses nepotism, ineffective faculty, lack of effective leadership, and other serious problems at our institutions of higher education.
