Leadership in Times of Change: A Handbook for Communication and Media Administrators

By William G. Christ | Go to book overview

ment, dealing with intra-university competition and outside stakeholders, responding to student needs, gender issues, diversity and multiculturalism, promotion, tenure, and faculty evaluation, federal mandates, self-studies, external reviews, and programmatic assessment.

It is hoped that the book will fill a gap in the literature by providing, in one place, solutions and strategies for leadership in times of change.


ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

A book like this is truly a collaborative effort. First, there were those, like professor Joe Foote ( Southern Illinois University) who has championed the need to mentor young administrators in our field. His concern, which he has addressed within a number of national associations, provided an impetus for developing this book.

Second, there are the chapter authors. Time is perhaps the greatest challenge of being an administrator. People and problems are pulling at you in many different ways. I would like to formally thank the authors in this volume for finding the time to share their ideas and experience. Throughout the lengthy review process, these authors kept their focus and senses of humor.

And, finally, there are the people behind the scenes. From Lawrence Erlbaum Associates, I would like to thank Linda Bathgate who took this project as it was just beginning and saw it through with grace. I would also like to thank the best copy editor in the business, Teresa Horton, and Debbie Ruel, senior production editor who helped keep me on schedule. And, finally, I would like to thank Joe Petrowski who handled the business side of the project, and Kathleen O'Malley who believed enough in the project to do the initial signing.

From the National Communication Association, I would like to thank Ann Nadjar, NCA Publications Manager, for her support in this co-publication venture. I would also like to thank the NCA publication board who believed in the importance of this project.

From Trinity University, I would like to thank my department for their friendship. They are a terrific group of colleagues. I also would like to thank President Ronald K. Calgaard, Vice President Edward C. Roy, Jr., and Dean William O. Walker, Jr. Under their leadership Trinity University has prospered. All three are leaving higher education administration. All three will be missed. I would especially like to thank
