Main Street Books – 126 S. Main Street

We invite readers to join Deborah Clarke at Main Street Books for a discussion of her book The Insider’s Guide to Working with Universities. Why do decisions in universities take so long and involve so many people? Why isn’t growth a priority for colleges? Why can’t faculty be managed like any other employees? How can alumni work more effectively with campus leaders? As leaders in higher education with years of experience working with business executives, governing boards, faculty, consultants, and alumni, James W. Dean Jr. and Deborah Y. Clarke have noticed that these questions often arise, revealing that many business-based partners have a limited understanding of academic institutions. This book offers practical guidance for those who seek to invest in and help enhance higher education.
