Description & Coverage
Description:

Incoming college presidents are entering the job at a time when the role is increasingly challenging as they are asked to do more, decide and act faster, create and maintain more relationships, and demonstrate successes while under an unrelenting microscope. The range of leadership skills and competencies surrounding the current college presidency requires well-prepared and well-informed college presidential aspirants. Research shows there is no formal training framework available in colleges to prepare successful candidates for the presidency. Consequently, most incoming college presidents have lamented being ill-prepared for the role.

The Evolving College Presidency: Emerging Trends, Issues, and Challenges provides guidance and career trajectory advice for aspiring college presidents as they prepare to take on this challenging and dynamic role. The text also explores the emerging trends, issues, and challenges of the college presidency including issues such as diversity and inclusion, funding and fundraising, and political issues. Covering a range of critical topics such as student affairs and community relationships, this reference work is vital for higher education professionals, administrators, researchers, practitioners, scholars, academicians, instructors, and students.
