Written by presidents, for presidents, no other book provides first hand insights from leaders in higher education from across the spectrum, from large state universities to smaller private colleges to community colleges. For many presidents, being Out in Front ends up being a trial-by-fire experience. This books fills the gap by providing insights on how to deal with some of the most pressing day-to-day situations that leaders in higher education face.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A priority for the Academy should be a more focused, comprehensive approach to creating a true leadership culture. This means providing the training and tools new deans and presidents need to be successful. Out In Front should be required reading for anyone who either aspires to become, or who is in such a leadership role. -- Erroll Davis, Chancellor of The University System of Georgia
This book covers it all-from the viewpoint of those who have been there. Every new (and some old) presidents should read it and keep it handy on the shelf. -- Clifford M. Brock, President, Barstow Community College District, California
This book is timely and needed for today's new college presidents, and, also, for those who have been presidents for twenty years like myself. This book is critical reading and is on target! -- Jim Kerley, Ph.D., President, Gulf Coast Community College
Presidents face very complicated decisions every day. The chapters in this book are written about the intricacies they must address from a very practical perspective by expert professionals. This is a must read for both the seasoned president as well as those who aspire to be a college president. -- Michael B. McCall, President, Kentucky Community and Technical College System
Theodore Roosevelt stated that 'The most important single ingredient in the formula of success is knowing how to get along with people.' Therefore, it should be no surprise that the successful presidency is about building and maintaining healthy, lasting relationships between the institution's chief representation and its stakeholders and potential critics. As a former three-time college president, I strongly advocate that Out in Front is a must read for aspiring presidents and a valuable refresher to sitting presidents. -- Richard J. Federinko, Ph.D., Senior Vice Chancellor for Student Services and Administration, Troy University
