Overview

Oakley served over three decades as professor, dean of the faculty, and then president of Williams College in Massachusetts. Chronicling the evolution of his college presidency, the first quarter of the text examines the competing theories of leadership forming the conceptual framework within which leadership research has been pursued over the past several decades, and the conditions under which Oakley and his fellow university and college presidents undertook their leadership responsibilities during the mid-1980s to mid-1990s. The bulk of the text consists of 24 public statements, addresses, lectures and reports Oakley made, offered here as evidence of the challenges and opportunities he faced as a university president.
