SUMMARY

Reflecting a national movement that seeks to create a more holistic model of learning and teaching on college and university campuses, Education as Transformation is a collection of twenty-eight essays written by a wide range of educators--including presidents, chancellors, deans, faculty members, administrators, religious life professionals, students, and other leaders in the field of education--on the themes of religious pluralism and spirituality in higher education. These essays provide scholarly analysis, practical information, and inspiration for those who agree that higher education can combine both head and heart in the teaching and learning process and in campus and community life. In seeking to articulate a new vision for higher education in America, the authors explore the possibility that both scholarship and spirituality are essential to fostering global learning communities and responsible global citizens who can address the challenges of a diverse world. &la" With the increased dominance of specialized knowledge and technical process, all in higher education--students, faculty, and administrators alike--are searching for new sources of meaning and coherence in their lives.

This book should be read widely throughout higher education. (R. Eugene Rice, Scholar in Residence and Director of the Forum on Faculty Roles and Rewards of the American Association for Higher Education) &la" This valuable collection draws fresh anduseful insights on the current state of American university culture from the worlds of religion and spirituality. The voices encountered here, both new and established, will surprise the academy with their humanity and utility. The reflections about campus community buiKazanjian, Victor, Jr. is the author of 'Education As Transformation Religious Pluralism, Spirituality, and a New Vision for Higher Education in America' with ISBN 9780820445465 and ISBN 0820445460.
