ACE and the TIAA Institute will host a webinar on Sept. 28 at 1:00 pm EDT with college and university presidents and higher education scholars to learn about their perspectives on and reactions to the key findings of the American College President Study 2017 (ACPS).
Released in June 2017, the report is the eighth edition of the leading and most comprehensive study of the college presidency. The ACPS includes data on presidential demographics, search and selection processes, career trajectories, and the duties and responsibilities of higher education chief executive officers. For the first time, the report also examines the views of presidents in three key areas: diversity and inclusion; state funding and political climate; and areas of importance for the future.
The confirmed speakers are:
- Judy C. Miner, chancellor, Foothill-De Anza Community College District (CA)
- Jose Cruz, president, CUNY Lehman
- Paul Yakobowski, senior economist, TIAA Institute
- Adrianna Kezar, leadership scholar, University of Southern California
- Jonathan Gagliardi, associate director, CPRS, ACE (moderator)

Prior to the webinar, participants are encouraged to visit ACE’s interactive data explorer to examine the data in key areas of the report and use the “Looking Ahead” feature, which incorporates historical data from the ACPS to calculate when the percentage of women presidents and the percentages of minority presidents will mirror their representation in the general U.S. population. Users can engage with the data and create their own deep-dives to understand how specific growth scenarios play out over time.
The data in the report and tool are derived from a 2016 study of more than 1,500 college presidents and chancellors conducted by ACE’s Center for Policy, Research and Strategy (CPRS); both were produced by ACE in partnership with the TIAA Institute.
