The 113-page  study presents data from a survey of 325 higher education faculty at major universities in the USA, Canada, the UK, Australia and Ireland about their evaluation of their university president.  The report presents detailed data on how faculty view the overall effectiveness of their chief executive, at their level of satisfaction with him or her, and with the university president’s performance in a broad range of areas.  The survey has detailed and subject specific data on how faculty view the university president’s performance in a broad range of areas, including but not limited to: fundraising, development of technology transfer and sponsored research, skills in attracting quality students, skill in attracting and retaining quality faculty, skill in helping faculty achieve success in research grants, capabilities in strategic planning and capital spending and many other areas.

Data in the report is broken out by many personal and institutional criteria including: age, gender, tenure status, teaching load, subject specialty and academic title of the survey participant, and country of origin, public/private status, and world university ranking of the university affiliated with the survey participant, among other variables.

Survey participants also list what they like most and least about their university president and list university presidents that they particularly admire.

Just a few of the report’s many findings are that:

  • Presidents are more popular at private schools, as almost twice as many faculty members offer high levels of support (almost 33%) as those from public schools (approximately 19%).
  • Employees at the lowest-ranked schools are more than twice as likely as those at top-ranked schools to say that university presidents are too powerful (34.18% vs. 14.63%).  Australians once again voice their dissent here, with 40% saying that presidents are too powerful, compared to only 17.07% of Americans.
  • Only about 10% of individuals age 50 – 59 awarded an A to their university president’s for their performance in attracting and retaining world class faculty, while almost 45% of those faculty aged 30 years or younger awarded an A to their president’s performance in this area.
