What do you recommend?

November 19, 2015

Are you also a student of higher education?

What are the books about higher education that are in your library?

I went through my Amazon and Audible library’s to figure out which books that I own on higher education. My hope is that you will let me know which books I should prioritize to read (they are sitting on my Kindle), and which books that you have read that we can discuss.

I’d also be curious about books on on higher education that you’d recommend that are missing from this list.
