Independent colleges face unique challenge and require the right leadership trained specifically to address those challenges. Those include financial uncertainty, rapidly changing markets, substitutes, new providers, a smaller pool of highly qualified leadership candidates, and limited succession planning. These institutions are constantly challenged to respond to the question: who will lead in the future?
