The forces impacting higher education add complexity to a carefully balanced system of leadership in our institutions. Unique issues face boards, administrators, and faculty, and finding alignment between them is key in demonstrating progress toward strategic goals.
Today we begin a series exploring governance in higher education from the perspective of leaders across the institution. In a series of conversations with trustees, presidents, faculty and beyond, Howard Teibel and Pete Wright host a dialog around authority, accountability, and responsibility for leadership.
This week, we set the stage for our conversations to come and introduce the big questions we’ll attempt to answer as we take on governance—leadership, strategy, and creativity at the top.
