This book considers two intriguing issues. One is an exploration of the characteristics that determine success and failure in the academy's top post. The second is more complex but equally crucial: What is the impact of presidents on the ideals of the university? How do presidential leadership, rhetoric, and action connect to the fundamental beliefs and values at the foundation of the university? College presidents are noteworthy leaders in and outside the gates. Deliberations about the success and failure of presidents, and their obligation to the foundations of the academy generate more questions than answers. However, this inquiry is crucial because it sheds light on the college presidency and on its relationship to the future of the university.
