President Kim Mooney featured in Chronicle of Higher Education
May 3, 2023
For their special report on “Meeting the daunting challenges of today's college presidency,” the editors of The Chronicle of Higher Education reached out to a handful of America’s college and university leaders, including Franklin Pierce University President Kim Mooney, asking them to weigh in with their thoughts on the evolving presidency, posting the question: “Is it an impossible job?”
The presidency is possible, says Kim Mooney, president of Franklin Pierce University,
“if you embrace collaboration, accept imperfection, and accommodate emotional ricochets.”
“The details and clarity offered in a president’s vision provide a destination to move toward, but the methods and outcomes along the way will be far messier than described."
On any given day, she says, “a range of issues unfold for a president’s immediate input or direct management. Some represent the truly urgent and others the seemingly absurd — sometimes all within minutes of one another.”
