This edited volume will be an important and key resource for
managers, researchers, and policy makers in the field of Higher
Education and Further Education. It offers insights into a radical
new way of organizing post-compulsory education on an international
basis that directly promotes a social justice agenda (i.e.,
widening of student participation). Around the world
post-compulsory education is divided between Universities and
Community-based Colleges. Universities are typically concerned with
"higher" education, while community based colleges focus on
"further" and technical education. In response to a range of social
and economic forces there has been a growth in the number of dual
sector institutions (or "duals") that span this divide. Challenging
Boundaries brings together leading international thinkers, policy
analysts, academic managers, and researchers who question whether
duals can provide relevant education to students and appropriate
graduates for the economy, while also offering greater
opportunities to disadvantaged students. Challenging Boundaries
provides an analysis of the potential of "dual sector" institutions
in North America, UK, South Africa, and Australasia. This volume
draws on the very latest research findings and effectively looks
to: Challenge conventional thinking about post-compulsory education
Demonstrate how a number of institutions internationally are
addressing the organizational, managerial, and cultural challenges
of operating as dual sector universities Combine the latest
research in the field from a range of international scholars with
operational insights from university leaders Provide a key resource
for education policy makers and researchers and students of
educational policy and management at masters and doctoral level
