Jane McAuliffeFour years ago Bryn Mawr President Jane McAuliffe attended the Harvard Seminar for New Presidents just after taking the reins at Bryn Mawr.

This month she returned to the seminar to lead a session on how presidents cope with the vast diversity of their internal and external responsibilities.

She also spoke about the challenges and opportunities of a new president’s first year in office and how she managed those at Bryn Mawr.

”I enjoyed returning to the Harvard program, and it was a privilege to spend time with those who are just embarking upon the excitement and responsibility of a college or university presidency,” says McAuliffe.

Later in the month, McAuliffe spoke at the inaugural session of the American Council on Education’s Institute for New Presidents, held in Arlington, Va.

At this institute, she again addressed issues of presidential transition and the importance of being sensitive to the particular culture of a campus and to the styles of leadership that will be most effective.
