Challenges of the Presidency.
McLean, Sandi, Ed.
"Challenges of the Presidency" explores the circumstances and forces that affect the college president's leadership in identifying and accomplishing the educational mission of the institution. These four papers examine the external forces of government and population trends as well as the internal pressures from faculty and students, and offer different perspectives on the actions to be taken and the expected outcomes. Issues dealt with are: (1) maintenance of quality education in the face of declining enrollments, decreasing public support to higher education, faculty cuts, and weakening student commitment to education; (2) institutional efficiency in state systems; (3) centralization, financing, and enrollments as challenges to the presidency; and (4) definitions of an institution, institutional effectiveness, and institutional evaluation.
