Millard rejects the view that higher education is currently failing to respond to new challenges and that it should revert to its past as a model for the future. In this book he exposes prevalent myths about higher education that inhibit administrators and faculty from realistically dealing with changing conditions and that reinforce an elitist conception of the function of higher education in society.

Todays Myths and Tomorrows Realities attempts to show how, through careful analysis and innovative programmes, these assumptions and beliefs can be reshaped to help higher education leaders and their institutions meet the challenges presented by an ageing population, ethnic and racial diversity, and demands for a more educated and skilled work force. Drawing on his extensive experience as a college educator, administrator, and state board member, Millard identifies and analyzes seven groups of myths that restrain critical areas of higher education today - and describes what higher education must do to free itself from these facilities.
