Universities and Colleges with a Christian affiliation have in recent years sought to renew and redefine their identities and almost all have rearticulated their mission for the modern age after a long and serious process of reappraisal. This process has been accompanied by an ongoing discussion of the nature and identity of higher education itself. This discussion has required leadership that is different from most secular leadership. This book provides a range of experienced voices, including the Archbishop of Canterbury, that reflect on the character and mission of leadership in Christian higher education in the 21st Century.

Effective leadership is essential for the flourishing of any academic institution. With the challenges of senior-level leadership being more complex today than ever before, it is essential to learn from the wisdom of successful leaders who have gone before. "Thriving in Leadership," edited by Karen A. longman, includes contributions by 17 other senior leaders in Christ-centered colleges and universities across North America. This compilation represents an engaging introduction to leadership approaches and strategies in Christian higher education, designed to strengthen the leaders of today and inspire the leaders of tomorrow. Since 1998, the Council for Christian Colleges & Universities (CCCU) has offered leadership Development Institutes (lDIs) and Women's leadership Development Institutes (WlDIs) every other year with the goal of identifying, equipping, and encouraging the next generation of leadership for Christ-centered higher education. The chapter authors of this compilation are drawn from lDI/WlDI resource leadership Teams over the past dozen years, collectively bringing hundreds of years of leadership experience to the topics being addressed. These authors have served effectively in senior-level leadership positions; they have also experienced God's calling though job transitions, family demands, and other relational responsibilities that have shaped their careers.

Abstract: What exactly are the criteria for determining the administrative effectiveness of a college president or dean? On what basis can one university president or dean be regarded as more effective than another? For the purpose of quality control, as well as to facilitate the choice of appropriate evaluation systems, it is essential to understand the basis on which administrators in Christian higher education are evaluated in terms of their performance. /p/ A study by Heck et al. (2000) points out the fact that "little previous research exists in the area of administrative effectiveness." (p. 663). Downey (2000) further argues that college administrators "have escaped scrutiny in relation to responsibility and accountability" (p. 2). Rosser et al. (2003) observed that the evaluation of deans has not been guided by firmly established assessment practices that are systematically fair and accurate (p. 2). An objective and efficient assessment, therefore, cannot be possible unless there is a clear understanding of the conceptual foundation of administrative effectiveness in higher education (Ebmeier, 1991, p. 247; Gialamas, 2011, p. 1). /p/ This study provides a broad understanding of the conceptual framework that serves as the basis on which college or university administrators' role effectiveness is evaluated within the general context of Christian higher education. The integration of social science research and biblical-theological perspectives in this study proffers three key domains as being responsible for leadership effectiveness in Christian higher education: (1) "Lead Self"; (2) "Lead Others"; and (3) "Lead the Institution". A number of specific leadership effectiveness characteristics are identified and examined dealing with the academic presidents', deans', and other upper-level administrators' roles. Implications and applications are made not only for college or university presidents and deans but for several stakeholders, including governing boards, chief administrators and academic leaders, faculty, students, agencies responsible to promote character formation, as well as those responsible for regulatory and fiduciary affairs. It is hoped that this research will aid Christian higher education administrators in understanding the key variables and processes that are essential for improving their performance effectiveness and advancing their institutional vision and goals.

This timely look at the state of Christian higher education in America contains descriptive, historical narratives that explore how fourteen Christian colleges and universities are successfully integrating faith and learning on their campuses despite the challenges posed by the increasingly pluralistic nature of modern culture. Written by respected representatives from seven major faith traditions - Roman Catholic, Lutheran, Reformed, Mennonite, Evangelical, Wesleyan/Holiness, and Baptist/Restorationist - these narratives are also preceded by introductory essays that define the worldview and theological heritage of each given tradition and ask what that tradition can contribute to the task of higher education.

"The first two articles in Part I by John Howard Yoder, written respectively in 1958 and 1964, were unpublished documents from the Yoder Papers in the Mennonite Archives at Goshen College. The third article was originally prepared by John Howard Yoder and Paul Lederach as part of a committee charged with the responsibility to articulate a philosophy of education for the Mennonite Church. It was published as an appendix to the book Mennonite Education: A Philosophy of Education for the Mennonite Church byDaniel Hertzler (Herald Press, 1971). The articles in Part 2 of this book were first printed in the Concern pamphlet 13 in 1966 under the editorship of Virgil Vogt."--Editor's Note, p. vi.

“Now what should I do?” This is a question academic leaders ask themselves with great regularity. As ironic as it may seem, very few academic leaders have had any formal training in academic administration, or in any kind of administration at all. For the most part, academic administrators learn on the job. They also seek advice wherever they can get it. The purpose of this book is to offer such advice. The book is written both for academic administrators at all levels as well as for those who aspire to academic administration.
