Lunchtime Lecture: "Leading and Managing Universities: Why We Need Scholars in Charge"

Lunchtime Lecture: "Leading and Managing Universities: Why We Need Scholars in Charge"

Dr Goodall argues in her recently published Socrates in the Boardroom (Princeton University Press, 2009) that scholars make the best university leaders and draws correlations between the excellence of universities and the academic distinction of their leaders. She will argue in her lunchtime lecture at UCC that scholars who are in management positions behave differently from those who are fundamentally managers, because, she believes, they are more likely to create the right conditions for other experts to flourish. Whatever your views are of this current, though timeless, debate, this lunchtime lecture is sure to occasion a lively discussion afterwards!
