Chaos Theory and Higher Education

Leadership, Planning, and Policy


Marc Cutright

The challenges of leadership, policy formation, and strategic planning in higher education are difficult under the best of circumstances. Our rapid pace of change and shifting societal expectations of higher education sharpen these challenges. The authors of this anthology – institutional leaders and academics from the United States, Canada, and Great Britain – consider metaphors of chaos theory that may have not only descriptive utility, but prescriptive power, in the enhancement of these duties and opportunities.
