Abstract

This paper discusses a paradigm for rating college presidents that stresses factors that provide long-term value such as vision, faculty engagement, building a learning organization, providing ethical leadership, increasing student satisfaction, and enhancing the reputation of the organization. We are in a knowledge economy where creativity, skills, adaptability, and character are what matter; the old ways of running a college, that might have worked half a century ago, simply do not work today. What can really destroy a college is making changes for the purpose of padding the CVs of administrators rather than improving educational quality.

Keywords: College presidents, leadership, vision, faculty engagement, silo busting, student satisfaction, college reputation, waste and inefficiency, college rankings, AACSB accreditation
