Some Of 2023’s Best Higher Education Books
Biographies, handbooks, histories, forecasts and memoirs highlight some of the best higher education books of 2023. Here are my choices for top titles.
Michael T. Benson’s Daniel Coit Gilman and the Birth of the American Research University is a masterful biography of Gilman, the third president of the University of California and the first president of Johns Hopkins University. Benson, the president of Coastal Carolina University, explores Gilman’s encouragement of the American research university and its unique combining of the British emphasis on undergraduate education with the German focus on original research and graduate training.
