Moral Problems in Higher Education

Edited by Steven M. Cahn


"Moral Problems in Higher Education brings together essays on a wide range of central ethical issues in higher education and organizes them in a way that clearly presents the various aspects of the on-going philosophical analysis and debate of each issue. Some of the essays are classics. Others are superb examples of the power of philosophical analysis to elucidate complex topics. All are excellent."
Peter J. Markie, Professor/Curators Teaching Professor, Department of Philosophy at the University of Missouri

"Moral Problems in Higher Education is well written and engaging. Cahn draws together a series of thoughtful reflections on important issues facing the academy. This is a very useful book for higher education administration and faculty leaders who should read—and enjoy—it."
Matthew Hartley, Associate Professor and Chair of the Higher Education Division in the School of Education at the University of Pennsylvania

"This book would be useful for courses in higher education leadership or new president seminars offered by collegiate associations and schools of education. We yearn for morality in public life, and need more discussion of the moral issues facing higher education."
The New England Journal of Higher Education
