Critical Issues and Leadership.
Peoples, John A., Jr.
The lack of administrative power causes concern today when the outstanding issues in higher education are concerned with questions of student, faculty or other kinds of power. The position that leadership takes in resolving these issues determines whether they become more or less explosive. There is no guaranteed formula for solving the complex problems stemming from new campus activism; the route to one solution can aggravate other problems. But an educational leader should not hesitate to act if his judgment dictates that passivity would not lead to eventual achievement of institutional goals. He should be a catalyst in guiding all vital issues at any of their critical stages into constructive channels. (WM)
