Description - A Compass for Uncharted Lives by Donald J. Kirby

Responding to the growing importance of the values education movement and the need for institutional guidance in the planning and implementation of values programs, this book offers a practical and conceptual model. A founder and for fifteen years the director of the Center for the Advancement of Values Education (CAVE) at Le Moyne College, Donald J. Kirby draws on that experience to clarify and describe the development, research, and fine-tuning skills required to create this evolving, effective, operational process. He makes the process come alive giving others the power to make it a reality in their own institutions. He documents the leadership, growth process, structure, and institutional support that have enabled the CAVE model to succeed at Le Moyne. Discussing a number of approaches, Kirby offers advice for tailoring the CAVE model to various kinds of institutions, from large universities to medical, law, and business schools. "Compass for Uncharted Lives" provides a unique practical guide to program development, making this book an invaluable resource for faculty and administrators who want to move from desire to action in terms of values education.
