Stephen Joel Trachtenberg and E. Gordon Gee - Leading Colleges and Universities: Lessons from Higher Education Leaders

Upcoming Event
Saturday, September 15, 2018 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

From free speech and diversity to sexual harassment and fraternities, today’s institutions of higher learning face any number of urgent challenges. Co-edited with Gerald B. Kauvar and E. Gordon Gee, his follow-up to Presidencies Derailed, a detailed look at why university presidencies fail, considers what we can learn from successful leaders of post-secondary schools. Drawing on the collective wisdom of some of the country’s most respected figures in higher education, including his own experience as president emeritus of George Washington University, Trachtenberg offers specific, practical ways that college leaders can manage athletics, the faculty, a governing board, and a local community; control an institutional budget and investment portfolio; be prepared to manage crises; and recognize when to be outspoken with the media.
