Small Men on Campus: Modern University Presidents.
Dennison, George M.
Innovative Higher Education, v25 n4 p269-84 Sum 2001
Evaluates claim of the "shrinking college president" and suggests a revised interpretation: modern presidents focus on their institutions rather than on higher education in general, by way of contrast to earlier presidents, and they spend more time on campus rather than on general societal concerns. That difference, however, appears to be dissipating because of developments and needs within society. (EV)
