The Next Generation of Higher Education Leaders

Wednesday, April 18, 2018


Higher education is changing dramatically, and with it academic leadership changes. Writes Witt/Kieffer's Dennis Barden: "The most sacred of orthodoxies are being questioned – tenure, shared governance, tuition, traditional pedagogies, even liberal arts education itself – and governing boards are challenging structures that have been in place for centuries…in some cases because they have been in place for centuries. It seems entirely likely that the academy will undergo fundamental change as a result. As of this writing, the future is not remotely clear, but a few educated guesses are likely to provide a roadmap for the aspiring higher education leader of tomorrow."
