"Reframing Academic Leadership is the most comprehensive book on the topic and an excellent source of knowledge for faculty and managerial leaders in every college and university. An invaluable resource for students of higher education leadership!"
—Maureen Sullivan, professor of practice, Simmons College Graduate School of Library and Information Science
"Reframing Academic Leadership provides a compassionate understanding of the stresses of leadership in higher education. It offers insights to those who do not fully appreciate why higher education is so hard to 'manage' and validation for those entirely familiar with this world. I recommend it enthusiastically."

"Bolman and Gallos provide a refreshing view of leadership essential for those assuming presidencies and other important leadership positions in higher education. This work is a bedside reference for aspiring and current leaders in higher education not only in the U.S. but also abroad."
—Fernando Leon Garcia, rector, Sistema CETYS Universidad, Baja California, Mexico
"Bolman and Gallos have written a practical, lucid text that brings together illustrative vignettes and robust frameworks for diagnosing and managing colleges and universities. I recommend it to new and experienced administrators who willroutinely confront difficult people, structures, and cultures in their workplaces."
—Christopher Morphew, professor and chair, Educational Policy and Leadership Studies, College of Education, University of Iowa
"Reframing Academic Leadership is filled with real-world examples from leaders. The book reads like a guide for leading a chamber music rehearsal where one's role constantly shifts from star to servant and where multiple answers may be 'right.'"
