American College President Study 2017
As market forces continue to reshape the higher education landscape, understanding the U.S. college presidency – and its inherent challenges and opportunities – is more important than ever.
The 2017 edition of the American College President Study provides the most comprehensive examination to date of American college and university presidents. In addition to examining presidential demographics, search and selection processes, career trajectories, and duties and responsibilities, this eighth edition of the study explores presidents’ views on diversity and inclusion, state funding, the political climate, and important future considerations. The 2017 edition was produced by the American Council on Education (ACE) in partnership with the TIAA Institute.
