"On the Margin and at the Center: Presidential Leadership for a Pluralistic Democracy"
What role does presidential leadership play in our increasingly pluralistic higher education institutions? How can we best prepare the next generation of higher education leaders for the challenges they will face? How will P-16 partnerships, diversity, and community issues impact the future of higher education? These are just some of the areas Dr. Garcia will address in her presentation, drawing both from her experiences as president of two different institutions and her own scholarship on leadership and diversity.
