Hoffman and Summers provide both a conceptual framework and practical approaches relevant to leadership issues in higher education. This book offers solutions for those in leadership positions or those anticipating a position in higher education. It focuses on everyday operational problems and will provide the current or future reader with guidelines for action.

Higher education leaders must have both a sense of the past and a vision of the future. The world is changing rapidly and these changes will have an inevitable and profound impact on higher education. Institutions that fail to respond to the trends taking place around them will not likely survive with significance very far into the new millennium. This book offers help in making the transition from traditional manager/administrator to a valued leader in higher education.
