Wessel, Roger D.; Kein, Marybelle C.
Journal of Higher Education, v65 n2 p211-25 Mar-Apr 1994
A study of 270 private, 4-year college and university presidents examined career patterns, finding that 69% followed an academic route to the presidency and the remainder began as entry- or middle-level administrators. Governing boards tend to choose presidents who fit the mission and unique demands of the institution. (MSE)
