Key Insights

Leading a university has never been more challenging, especially for new presidents. Whether a presidential transition invigorates an institution with new strategic vision, or injects complication and uncertainty, depends heavily on how leadership teams onboard and support their new president. That’s why it’s pertinent that leadership teams prepare the most effective orientation packet to help new presidents get up to speed and ready to lead quickly.
