Do new administrators really experience a honeymoon period? Is a confrontation with a hostile faculty a certainty? With an eye toward the ideal but a foot planted firmly in reality, this book views the crumbling of ten major myths about academic administration. Over 125 executives from colleges of all types and sizes were polled and responded with their experiences of today's most prevalent misconceptions. Myths explored and exploded include how administrators inherit untouchables, yearn for the classroom, equivocate, and are torn by conflicting constituencies. This volume, with its candid comments, ventures to transcend the silence surrounding the intimate concerns, pressures, ideals and realities of the chief executive position while effecting new debate and personal reflection.

In this profound look at the academy, John Bennett reminds us that our leadership decisions always presuppose our philosophies of life and that understanding precedes practice. How we understand the communities we lead informs the many practical judgments we make about directions to take, structures to create, processes to initiate, and values to uphold. Bennett argues that faculty may understand their departments or institutions in one of two ways: as simply aggregations of individuals or as communities of intertwined persons. From these views, two different leadership values and positions emerge. The first disposes us toward seeing academic conflict as inevitable and elevates heroic leadership styles where power is understood in terms of advancing one agenda over competitors. The second underwrites leadership as supposing openness to others and emphasizes the vital contributions that can follow. By providing specific illustrations of the two modes of leadership and the nature of hospitality and openness, Academic Life presents a strong platform from which to build a rich and rewarding academic community. Contents include: • The nature of insistent individualism • Why the prevalence of insistent individualism? • Hospitality as an essential virtue • Self, others, institutions, and the common good • Conversation as an essential metaphor • The uses of conversation • Community and covenant • Engaged, but not heroic, leadership

Providing the most updated information on the current financial aid system, especially the Government-subsidized Student Loan Program, in China, this book employs a multi-perspective approach to studying this loan program. Adopting an interdisciplinary framework, the book goes beyond examining the technical aspects of setting up a student loan program; it puts the loan program in a larger context of social stratification, equality and social justice.

Nonprofit organizations, their governing structures, boards of directors, and their newest constituency, members who represent the public at large, are the subject of this book. In recent years, new mechanisms have been developed to link citizens with government and with diverse policy-making entities. Earlier, it was assumed that citizens had little interest in policy deliberations, and responsibility for public needs was best left to the experts. Many citizens now believe that they have a legitimate right to infl uence how power is exercised in public organizations. Koff constructs a demographic profi le of public members, their activities, and their opinions about board membership. She also catalogues the perspectives of executive directors about public members, identifi es specifi c problems related to public participation, and suggests strategies to help resolve them. How effectively these bodies perform, and how well they respond to the public, are in part determined by the talents and activities of their members. All of these members, especially public members, need appropriate tools to be able to perform in a superior fashion. Despite the importance of governing bodies to an organization's performance, there has been little examination of board members in general and specifi cally of public members. This is the first book-length study on the subject.
