Kathleen Fitzpatrick's Generous Thinking proposes ways that anyone who cares about the future of higher education can work to build better relationships between our colleges and universities and the public, thereby transforming the way our society functions. She encourages the higher education community to engage openly with one another’s concerns by reading and exploring ideas together, creating collective projects focused around common interests, and ensuring our institutions are structured to support the public good.
