“Surviving to Thriving” Available 1.4.2014

The presidency at a residential liberal arts college requires a “ministry of presence” – everywhere, always, and at all times. It can easily become overwhelming. “Surviving to Thriving” takes the many elements of this ministry and presents them in ways that are manageable and accessible – the trees are revealed in a way that the forest becomes manageable. This should be high-priority reading for every new president and a good refresher for experienced presidents eager to be renewed.
—    Dr. Richard Torgerson, President Emeritus, Luther College
