The first full-length study devoted to examining new roles and responsibilities of the chief academic officer -- now more often called vice president for academic affairs or provost than the traditional academic dean -- First Among Equals addresses the need for vision and leadership by these individuals in an increasingly complex higher education environment. Contributors to this landmark volume -- all present or former chief academic officers -- conclude that the most effective leaders combine high levels of managerial acumen with professional scholarship while challenging their institutions to provide effective programs for complex and demanding constituencies. Each chapter of First Among Equals explores a different aspect of the chief academic officer's primary responsibilities, including relations with the president and the board, academic governance, curriculum development, new instructional technologies, enrollment management, legal affairs, and faculty development, among others. As higher education institutions compete to unprecedented degrees for the brightest students and the most accomplished faculty, First Among Equals provides much needed guidance for those who occupy or aspire to this position, both in understanding its expanding number of tasks and becoming expert at performing them. Contributors: Roy A. Austenson, Michael Baer, James Coffman, Mark Edelstein, Michael Gallagher, Alice B. Hayes, Ruth Larimer, Georgia Lesh-Laurie, Paula Hooper Mayhew, James Martin, James E. Samels, Peter Stace, Jon Strolle.
