Attacking the Problems: Student-Centered Strategies for Governors, Governing Boards, and University Presidents

  • Daniel M. Johnson


This chapter identifies leadership strategies for student-centered change and reforms that address major issues in public higher education including the tuition crisis, measures for learning (credit), the question of tenure, the future of campuses, costly and ineffective traditions, oversized and bloated administrations, duplication of programs and services, intercollegiate athletics, presidential selection and compensation, governance, changing student demographics, accreditation, and other pressing challenges. The author presents ideas, suggestions, and proposals for a “change agenda” and strategies for reform for those responsible for governing our public universities, i.e., presidents, governing boards, state systems’ officials, legislators and, perhaps most importantly, governors.
