Why New Presidents Can't Sleep
Martin, James; Samels, James E.
Connection: The Journal of the New England Board of Higher Education, v19 n2 p21 Fall 2004
The pressures on new college presidents begin before the new leaders even arrive on campus. In this article, the authors explain why many new campus chiefs are leaving the job earlier than their predecessors. An unforgiving set of expectations is swiftly placed in new presidents--often before their first day on campus--by students, faculty, and most commonly, trustees.
