The introductions sets out the context for the book – in the author’s own experience of leadership in higher education, and against the background of recent changes in higher education policy and practice. It sets out the purpose: to provide a constructive critique of higher education policy and practice in the UK, the US and beyond, from the standpoint of Christian theology, focused on the role that universities can and should play in forming students and staff in intellectual virtue, in sustaining vibrant communities of inquiry, and in serving the public good. It surveys the course that the argument of the book as a whole will take, from historical investigations, through an Anglican theology of learning, to a series of engagements with contemporary higher education policy and practice.
