About the Book
A President’s Perspective, featuring Dr. Jay Gogue, immediate past president of Auburn University, offers practical insights into the challenges of the university presidency drawn from his long career in administration.

This digital textbook covers all the fundamental areas of higher education administration. In addition to Gogue’s observations, each chapter of the textbook also includes commentary from veteran administrators Gretchen Bataille and Robert Moulton, who served as consultants for the project.

Additional commentary from other high-level administrators at institutions across the country appears throughout the text.
A President’s Perspective is designed to serve as the principal text for higher education administration courses or as a supplementary source tailored to specific subject areas.
The first of its kind—this digital text is a practical guide to the realities of administration.

This e-book is designed to be used in whole or in part; faculty may choose individual chapters for their classes or even elements of the individual chapters. Elements of the text are easily adaptable for use in leadership programs and seminars as well. A President’s Perspective is a cost-effective learning tool and is priced well below the cost of a standard textbook.
