The View from the Helm: Leading the American University during an Era of Change

by Duderstadt James J.

Drawing on his experiences as president of the U. of Michigan from 1988 to 1996, Duderstadt (science and engineering, U. of Michigan) presents a combined memoir of his tenure with a commentary on the state of the contemporary American university presidency. Coverage includes a brief history of the U. of Michigan and ways that earlier Michigan presidents shaped and were shaped by their tenure, the various paths to a university presidency, the selection and evaluation of university leadership, the diverse roles and responsibilities of the contemporary university president, and the personal and professional life of an individual holding such a post. Duderstadt offers current and future administrators an insightful primer on academic leadership and ideas about the directions higher education should take in the 21st century.
