Strategic Leadership addresses deep and continuing issues relating to strategy, governance, management, and leadership in higher education during a period of rapid change. Each of these themes is at the heart of current debates about the capacity of universities to respond to new expectations, market realities, reduced state funding, globalization, technology, and a long list of other challenges. Dealing with these issues can immobilize colleges and universities, or it can cause them to become so market-driven that they will sacrifice their own legacy of academic values. This book places strategic planning in a new conceptual framework that is oriented to interactive leadership rooted in human agency and values. It will assist academic professionals, stakeholders such as trustees, and students of higher education to better understand and use strategic planning as an effective process and as a method of collaborative leadership.

Richard L. Morrill serves on several corporate and not-for-profit boards and as a consultant on governance, leadership, and strategy to colleges and universities. Following ten years as president of the University of Richmond, he became chancellor and was also named Distinguished University Professor of Ethics and Democratic Values in 1998. He previously served as president of Centre College and of Salem College.Review:
"This book has two great values: first, it may be the best book yet published on strategic leadership in general; second it IS the very best book yet published on strategic leadership for 21st century higher education. Indeed, given the thorough and wide-ranging nature of Morrill's study, one can only conclude that this is and will be the definitive statement on strategic leadership in higher education for years to come.... Strategic Leadership is a must read for presidents, aspiring presidents, senior institutional leaders, board members, strategic planners of all stripes, and for students of higher education desiring to understand the vagaries of academic culture and the complexities of leadership in the 21st Century." (Dr. Thomas C. Longin^LExecutive Editor, Planning for Higher Education and consultant to Presidents & Governing Boards)
"Richard Morrill's new work takes the national dialogue on higher education strategy and leadership and puts some meat on the bones. This is a unique time in our country's fundamental relationship with and expectations for higher education. Myriad studies and data clearly demonstrate that the time is now for new strategies and responses. This volume provides a detailed roadmap to achieve success through engaged and effective leadership. It is a necessary volume for all who recognize the challenges we face." (Richard D. Legon, President, Association of Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges, Washington, D.C.)
