Kormondy (Chancellor emeritus, U. of Hawaii-Hilo) and consultant Keith (formerly President, Chaminade U. of Honolulu) write for trustees, college and university presidents, faculty members, accrediting agencies, citizens and stakeholders such as alumni, describing educational institutions pulled from the brink by presidents and chancellors. They note that closing a college is not that rare, and in fact over 500 of them shut down between 1966 and 2006. They believe an energetic president with a good plan can bring colleges in financial and emotional breakdown back to sound operation, and they prove it in narratives ranging from small, private liberal arts schools to larger public institutions, analyze the organizational and motivational actions the presidents and chancellors took, summarize and compare the actions, and give seven (and a little more) lessons they learned from the nine heroes of their stories.

Review:

"This is a remarkable piece of work! It presents a series of nine case studies of higher education institutions that were salvaged from what appeared to be failures - sudden but more typically gradual. In each case, the salvaging president or chancellor (the "hero/heroine") was the critical factor who identified and traveled the road to success." - E.K. Fretwell Chancellor Emeritus University of North Carolina - Charlotte "The view of the college president as steward of institutional heritage and values is one worthy of accent and visibility, and this book elevates that perspective of presidential role admirably." - Dr. E. Grady Bogue Professor University of Tennessee "Kormondy and Keith have produced an exceptionally valuable handbook for all those who now or in the future wish to consider becoming a college or university president." - Dr. Allan W. Ostar President Emeritus American Association of State Colleges and Universities"
