How to Keep Leadership Success a Priority Through a Leadership Transition

Building student success is a long game. How can colleges sustain the momentum on improving student outcomes in the midst of a change at the top?

Join us remotely as a panel of experts examines:

  • How can departing leaders work with their successors to ensure that retention and graduation rates continue to improve?
  • What role should the board of trustees play?
  • How can presidents leave a legacy of an administrative culture that is centered on student success?
  • What contributions can former presidents continue to make without stepping on the new leader’s toes?


  • Alexander C. Kafka, senior editor, The Chronicle
  • Freeman A. Hrabowski III, President, University of Maryland, Baltimore County
