Balance Wheel: Presidents Should Use Their Moral Authority to Protect Academe
Nelson, Stephen J.
Connection: The Journal of the New England Board of Higher Education, v19 n2 p13-14 Fall 2004
The most distinct aspect of the college presidency and one on which many observers tend to focus is the perception that presidents possess--and should use--their bully pulpits. How they use their perches trips alarm bells in and out of the academy. In this article, the author urges presidents to use their moral authority to shield their campuses from becoming ideological battlegrounds.
