Academic administration, argues Rudolph Weingartner, is different from administration or managing in business because of the special character of institutions of higher learning. Colleges and universities are founded to serve certain purposes; they are supported in various ways by governments and private individuals; and, as professional institutions, they have students, among others, as clients to whom they owe education services in ways analogous to the obligations hospitals have to their patients. In this book, Weingartner argues that academic administration is not just another job of managing, but a calling that importantly assists institutions to carry out their missions.

If the University had a constitution, would it contain a free speech provision such as exists in the U.S. Constitution? The author develops in some detail the idea of the University as a special social institution that has as its goal the dissemination and advancement of knowledge.Free Speech on Campus examines the arguments, pro and con, concerning appropriate standards of discourse and expression that are particularly germane to the campus context, public or private, whether or not they are constitutionally enforceable. Students and teachers in every discipline will find this book engaging and illuminating; it is especially relevant for ethicists and philosophers of education.
