Written for college leaders at all levels as well as for trustees, this book engages the reader, via narrative and analysis, with the reflective and the practical knowledge essential to a constructive legacy. Leaders of colleges and universities hold in trust an enterprise of complex mission, governance, and outcome. Most will take office with accompanying media celebration of their past records and future promise. Each will exit with a legacy. A few will leave behind tragic legacies of defeated spirits, corrupted organizations, and shameful ethical records. In Leadership Legacy Moments, the author reflects upon the ideas, skills, and values that are essential to effective leadership so that a leader leaves behind a student body with great promise, a set of accomplishments achieved in concert with faculty and staff, and an institutional culture that inspires curiosity, courage, and compassion. Professor Bogue illustrates how ideas and values are linked in the stewardship of one of our nation's premier organizational enterprises. The book is about constructing a leadership legacy that is both effective and ethical.
