General note"At the time of intensifying pressures in higher education leadership, this eighth edition of the American College President Study (ACPS), examines the contemporary profile of the presidency. In addition to the study's longtime look at presidential demographics, search and selection processes, career trajectories, and duties and responsibilities, this version of the ACPS newly examines the views of presidents in three key areas: diversity and inclusion, state funding and political climate, and areas of importance for the future. Findings are based on responses to a national survey of college and university presidents administered in 2016 by the American Council on Education's (ACE) Center for Policy Research and Strategy. The study was supported by the TIAA Institute. The data reflect responses from 1,546 presidents, chancellors, and CEOs at public, private not-for-profit, and private for-profit institutions of various types."--Page ix, Executive Summary.
