"This volume of brief essays by three dozen experienced presidents and other leaders in higher education is intended to provide candid reflections and examples from successful practitioners, illustrative of how they faced the many challenges that confront college and university presidents today."

"Trachtenberg and Kauvar’s previous book shared candid stories of how even well-trained, highly talented chief executives can fail. While that book did not focus on success, this one does. Bringing together a multitude of experienced, wise, and, once again, candid leaders, this new volume offers the solutions and paths forward to overcome the challenges within any presidency."

"This book is a valuable resource for university leaders navigating this extraordinary moment in higher education. Guided by decades of personal experience, the book's editors have compiled practical reflections and thoughtful insights on a range of important topics, including shared governance and crisis management."

"Leading Colleges and Universities covers the waterfront of complexity in higher education. From building quality teams to dealing with the 24/7 news cycle, this collection of essays from leaders in the field uses their real-life experiences to inform and shape one’s thinking. For anyone stepping into a leadership role in our nation’s colleges and universities, it is a must-read."
