"Covering the full range of topics - from the basics of university organization to academic focus, quality, strategic issues, and the acquisition and management of resources - the author examines the most critical questions facing administrators, trustees, faculty leaders, and all those who provide analytical support to institutional leaders." "Balderston offers advice on an array of fundamental administrative functions, as well as on meeting the challenge of value issues such as diversity and political correctness. He offers a framework for directing institutions through the critical processes of governance and leadership. He explains the complexities of financial issues such as budgeting, revenues and enrollment, and financial aid. And he examines the basic question of defining and achieving strategic direction for the university as a whole."--Jacket." ;
