New Issues--New Roles. A Conversation with State Higher Education Executive Officers.
Education Commission of the States, Denver, CO.; State Higher Education Executive Officers Association.
A conversation among nine state higher education executive officers (SHEEDs) and two moderators is presented to stimulate discussion of the role of state higher education leadership among the SHEEOs themselves and within the statewide boards, the institutional and political communities, and among researchers. SHEEO members discuss how their jobs have changed in the current environment of change in the formulation of education policy. After an introductory section, the following topics are addressed: (1) the changing role of state higher education officers (demands of the job, pressures from outside, the influence of economic development, and evolving agenda); (2) what it takes to be a leader (personal traits and progress and strategies); (3) the changing nature of relationships (the role of board members, looking in or out, the role of the media, the role of political leaders, and the role of institutional presidents); and (4) current and future issues (minority participation, demographics, economic readjustment, technology, the changing family, and miscellaneous issues).
