James C. Votruba

Gail W. Wells
There is an abundance of higher education leadership literature that offers significant insight into the challenges that colleges and university leaders confront. This brief volume focuses on the voices of those currently in leadership positions. The authors surveyed university deans, provosts, and presidents, asking them: “What is the best advice you received, or wish you had received, about how to be a successful (president, provost, or dean)?” This monograph captures their advice in their own words.
