This book provides a valuable overview of higher education from a multi-dimensional perspective. The authors argue that different parts of an academic institution constitute_six different “cultures.” They_contend that understanding the interplay between each of these six cultures will help academic leaders better understand, communicate with, and influence the constituencies they serve. Through the lens of these cultures, the_authors_build a framework_to_engage academic institutions in organizational_improvement and equip them to face the challenges and opportunities of the future. The book_is an updated, expanded follow-up_to The Four Cultures of the Academy._
