The College Presidency in the 21st Century

As the presidency enters a period of significant turnover, we have an opportunity to re-envision the post. This panel of exceptional leaders from diverse institutions will explore the role of college presidents in improving student success, in promoting social mobility, and in serving as national and local civic leaders.
