Changing the Production Function in Higher Education

December 30, 1899

Changing the Production Function in Higher Education is the second essay in a series that seeks to provide campus leaders with the latest scholarship and perspectives in the topic of academic productivity.

Changing the Production Function in Higher Education is a valuable tool for U.S. college and university leaders to effect and lead a new era of progress and innovation on their campuses.
