An expert guide designed to help university trustees become effective leaders.
Robert A. Scott is the former president of Adelphi University and of Ramapo College of New Jersey.
The ideas are presented alongside some changes colleges and
universities could make on their own, like modifying class
schedules to make better use of facilities. But the inclusion of

leaders, as they face the future. * Inside Higher Ed *
An important resource for both trustees and presidents, as well as anyone seeking to understand institutional governance. * Independent (Council of Independent Colleges) *
