Abstract:

Who are the men and women leading America's two-year colleges? What are their distinctive roles and responsibilities, their frustrations and rewards? What leadership skills do they bring to their work? And how do they interpret and articulate the community college mission in a changing society? In this pioneering book, George Vaughan answers these and many other crucial questions about the leaders of American community colleges. Here, community college presidents speak frankly about their beliefs, values, attitudes, goals, problems, and objectives, as do their spouses, colleagues, and trustees. The interviews, conducted over a three-year period, provide an evolutionary perspective on the changing role of the presidents and the presidency. -- From publisher's description.
