Clark Kerr's University of California: Leadership, Diversity, and Planning in Higher Education by Cristina González (2011)


This volume provides an intellectual history of Kerr's vision of the "multiversity," as expressed in his most famous work. The Uses of the University, and in his greatest administrative accomplishment, the California Master Plan for Higher Education. Building upon Kerr's use of the visionary hedgehog/shrewd fox dichotomy, the book explains the rise of the University of California as due to the articulation and implementation of the "hedgehog concept" of systemic excellence that underpins the Master Plan.
