The number of college presidents with experience from outside academia has grown during the past decade. A 2018 study from Virginia Commonwealth University revealed that 40.5 percent of college presidents have never held tenured or tenure-track positions. More and more presidents are coming to higher education institutions after spending their careers as businesspeople, military personnel and health-care professionals. That coaches are now part of the mix is unsurprising



WOW! Really fascinating!   :nod:
