This conference volume (2007) is the fourth in the TIAA-CREF Institute Series on Higher Education and is based on presentations from the 2007 TIAA-CREF Institute Higher Education Leadership Conference. This national conference of campus leaders was convened by the TIAA-CREF Institute to address the challenges and opportunities arising from the convergence of multiple generations of students, faculty and administrators, all with different values, perspectives and priorities.

Edited by Donald Heller, Professor of Education, Senior Scientist and Director of the Center for the Study of Higher Education at The Pennsylvania State University and Madeleine d'Ambrosio, Vice President and Executive Director of the TIAA-CREF Institute, the book is an outcome of the Institute's ongoing partnership with the higher education community. It includes chapters authored by prominent higher education thought leaders and represents the contributions of more than 100 others who shared their perspectives at the 2007 TIAA-CREF Institute Higher Education Leadership Conference.

The results point to a balancing act never before required by higher education.
