Smith, David; Bargh, Catherine; Bocock, Jean; Scott, Peter
Higher Education Management, v11 n2 p113-35 1999
A study of the educational, career, and demographic profiles of university vice-chancellors in the United Kingdom from 1960 to 1996 suggests that the shift from academic to administrative, toward executive and managerial, interpretation of university leadership has produced major changes in the career preparation and professional profiles of these administrators. However, the academic hierarchy remains the major source of recruitment. (Author/MSE)
