Barden is not only one of our firm’s most experienced search consultants (in advancement and development, as well as for presidents, provosts and more), but also one of our most prolific and eloquent writers. Since summertime is often when academic leaders have time to read and ponder their careers, we offer up “Barden’s Best”—a dozen (or so) great articles on leadership, recruiting, and job searching in academia. (Let us send a nod to the Chronicle of Higher Education, in which most of these articles were published.)
