A Conversation with Judy McLaughlin
Senior Lecturer, Harvard GSE and Founder and Chair of the Harvard Seminars for New College Presidents and Experienced Presidents
New Books Network 2021
Judy McLaughlin has helped prepare over 1000 college and university presidents to take on the varied responsibilities of their role since founding the Harvard Seminar for New Presidents in 1990. The Seminar was based on over a decade of research she and her colleagues conducted on the presidential search process, and the need they identified to provide a safe, confidential space for these leaders to discuss the issues and challenges they faced with experts and peers. She shares insights on how the role of college president has evolved over the last 3 decades and the key issues they are likely to face in the coming decade.
David Finegold is the president of Chatham University.
