  1. The New Global System: Lessons for Institutions of Christian Higher Education

    Spring 2006 — Pages 92-100

    Pervasive globalization and perennial separatism are the two paradoxical trends characterizing our planet today. Four dominant forces appear to be driving globalization: (a) mobility of capital, people and ideas; (b) simultaneity--the rapid decline of the time lag between the introduction of a product or service and its adoption almost everywhere; (c) bypass--cross-border competition resulting in multiple choices for the consumer; and (d) pluralism--multiple centers of expertise and influence. These same forces are transforming Christian higher education's macro-environment. To avoid marginalization, institutions of Christian higher education must adapt. Adaptability to the new global environment requires accessibility, flexibility, relevance, and creativity.
