President Maimon Calls on Higher Ed to Change Narrative

Higher Education leaders must change the narrative by breaking down hierarchy within universities' faculty ranks and calling out snobbery, Governors State University President Elaine P. Maimon told the Chronicle of Higher Education in a recent interview.

In A Veteran President Calls on Colleges to Stop the Snobbery, President Maimon also discussed the inspiration for "Leading Academic Change: Vision, Strategy, Transformation." 

"My book is very much a call for all of us in higher education to work together to educate this new majority. This does cost money. So from a political standpoint, the powers that be need to understand how important it is to invest in the institutions that are really committed to the new majority."
