"[This book] will help academics justify reengagement and recommitment to their institutions and to the good to which they instinctively know they should be dedicated."
--David W. Leslie, Chancellor Professor of Education, The College of William and Mary
"Leadership in Place provides ground-breaking insights into the practice of leadership in higher education. The constraints on authority in cultures that select for people who place a premium on their own autonomous research and teaching pose special demands for leadership, and Wergin's volume sheds penetrating light into these challenges. An immensely practical book."
--Ronald A. Heifetz, King Hussein Bin Talal Lecturer in Public Leadership, and Co-Founder, Center for Public Leadership, John F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University
