Humanistic Values from Academic Community Perspective is authored by a range of international experts with a diversity of backgrounds and perspectives and provides a collection of ideas, examples and solutions on Humanistic Values in Academia, implementation and problems that occur in this area of consideration.

This volume is a result of numerous discussions within the academic members to incorporate humanistic values like dignity, integrity, care, human rights etc. into our conduct composed of all the academic levels, beginning with students through staff, faculty and administration.

Authors and contributors of this book assume the importance and crucial role of values in managing contemporary organizations emphasizing the fact that the oldest organizations managed by core values are not the globally known and acknowledged business corporation but the institutions like churches, armies and the universities. Numerous institutions of higher education are proud of their core values and present them to their employees, students, and stakeholders.

The book is divided into four parts: I Introduction, II Humanistic values from academic perspective, III Humanistic values from student / faculty perspective and part IV Humanistic values from educational administrative perspective. We sincerely hope that the chapters presented in this volume will open new horizons for the understanding of humanistic values in academia and simultaneously it will provide inspiration and encouragement for further research in this area of study.
