Summary: "Many scholarly visions of morality in higher education suggest that moral instruction should deal primarily with a person's professional or political identity. In contrast, Glanzer and Ream argue that a more holistic moral education takes place within a university committed to a tradition that can set forth a comprehensive ideal for the school and its students about human well-being."--BOOK JACKET.
