Theories of Democratic Governance in the Institutions of Higher Education
New York, June 2004— Author Emmanuel N.A. Tetteh, published by iUniverse, Inc., the leading provider of publishing technology solutions for authors, announced today…
Is Education the Only Purpose Institutions of Higher Education Have?
Institutions of higher education have traditionally remained uninvolved in the democratic governance of the American civic society. Teaching students is not the sole purpose of these institutions. Author Emmanuel N.A. Tetteh contends institutions of higher education have a responsibility to contribute to developing a well-mannered society. In Theories of Democratic Governance in the Institutions of Higher Education, Professor Tetteh addresses the concern that institutions of higher education are not living up to their responsibility to developing a well-mannered society causing a decline in the security of society.
By exploring various theories of democratic governance, the history of the political culture, and the role of institutions of higher education in the United States and Ghana, Tetteh answers questions such as:
Is there any moral obligation for the institutions of higher education to direct their civic missions toward developing a well-mannered society or democratic governance?
In what ways can higher education live up to its civic missions?
Should the security of society be of any concern to higher education?“
Professionals in higher education can relate to the importance of this book as they strive to improve their institutions as well as society,” says Tetteh. “My intent for writing Theories of Democratic Governance in the Institutions of Higher Education is to inform those in higher education the importance that institutions of higher learning can play towards strengthening civic society.”
Tetteh posits that “the ideology of the development of civic virtues for higher culture in the democratic governance of civic society, exemplifies one of the social fabrics of good citizenship for ensuring homeland security at the face of growing regional or tribal conflicts, civic unrests, and the terror threats of radical religious fanatics in the world community.” As concerns of terrorism continue to rise, Theories of Democratic Governance in the Institutions of Higher Education looks at the role that institutions of higher education should have in contributing to society’s social conduct to ensure homeland security by redirecting their academic programs.
