The job of the public university ...

The job of the public university president is much more about external relations than it ever was before, said Bruce Alton, a senior consultant with the search division for the Association of Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges. Presidents spend 50 percent of their time building relationships and raising money.
Presidents and chancellors of public colleges also dedicate loads of time making a case for higher education funding with state lawmakers. So what universities need these days, said Alton, a former president of Rocky Mountain College in Billings, Mt., is someone who can bring people together. Someone, he said, who can sit comfortably between and communicate well with the business and the academic sectors.
