A great addition to any current text, this collection of case studies focuses on the functional areas of higher education administration. The book serves as an academic teaching tool and administrative support services reference, offering for each topical area a theoretical overview, relevant legal implications, and an accompanying case providing an application opportunity. Each case study is based on data generated from practicing higher education professionals representing a variety of institutions including two-year, four-year, public and private nonprofit, and for-profit schools. At the end of  the chapters are lists of study questions provided by the authors.
