st se ll er “This publication provides a timely and relevant discussion of one of the greatest challenges facing higher education: the anticipated presidential vacancies coupled with the lack of succession planning to prepare and consider internal candidates. President Bornstein presents a very strong challenge to higher education to internalize effective succession planning as a means to ensure smooth and effective leadership transitions.”

Succession

—Arnold Speert, President, William Paterson University

“Rita Bornstein has done an exceptional job in laying out the issues in a straight forward manner. The suggestions are both practical and all-encompassing, and I especially liked the underlying notion that this is an issue that requires us to think strategically across all sections of our institutions about long term institutional needs, not merely about the next transition from one president to another.

Succession Planning for the Higher Education Presidency

“As the financial realities of future revenue sources for higher education become more severe, as the related consequences of mischievous legislatures and congresses become more prevalent, and as student outcomes continue to be of greater interest to larger audiences, the academic presidency continues to morph into something less well known. Taking the cue from the corporate world and placing succession planning before boards and administrations is right on the mark. The predilections to tradition and righteousness will make succession planning a very hard sell…especially in public institutions. But that makes the case even more for encouraging discussion and analysis of some positive case studies.”

It’s the sort of book that both trustees and campus leaders, including the faculty, will find to be very useful in helping them to shape the conversations in ways that make sense to their particular college or university. And it has the added bonus of being clear about the fundamental challenges without being prescriptive about how they might be addressed.”
