Moral Problems in Higher Education brings together key essays that explore ethical issues in academia.

The editor and contributors - all noted philosophers and educators - consider such topics as academic freedom and tenure, free speech on campus, sexual harassment, preferential student admissions, affirmative action in faculty appointments, and the ideal of a politically neutral university.

Chapters address possible restrictions on research because of moral concerns, the structure of peer review, telling the truth to colleagues and students, and concerns raised by intercollegiate athletics. Cahn selects two key readings in each are to offer a readable introductory guide to these critical subjects for students studying academic ethics and higher education policy.

In addition to the selections and a general introduction, Cahn provides study questions for use in the classroom.
