McGill principal and vice-chancellor completes full circle - The Globe and Mail
MONTREAL — The Globe and Mail
Published Friday, Sep. 19 2014

On McGill’s role in shaping leaders:

“It’s very easy to stand at the sidelines, to be the critic at the outside of the action, to be blogging and tweeting and analyzing from the outside. But we will need our leaders, we need people in the middle of the action and not just people who observe and critique.”

Business School, Disrupted -
MAY 31, 2014 | NYT | By JERRY USEEM.

The question: Should Harvard Business School enter the business of online education, and, if so, how?

In the Porter model, all of a company’s activities should be mutually reinforcing. By integrating everything into one, cohesive fortification, “any competitor wishing to imitate a strategy must replicate a whole system,” Professor Porter wrote.

In the Christensen model, these very fortifications become a liability. In the steel industry, which was blindsided by new technology in smaller and cheaper minimills, heavily integrated companies couldn’t move quickly and ended up entombed inside their elaborately constructed defenses.

Ryerson president Sheldon Levy prepares to say farewell - The Globe and Mail

The Globe and Mail

Published Friday, Dec. 06 2013,

You’ve worked at many universities, including the University of Toronto, York University and the University of Ontario Institute of Technology. What sets Ryerson apart from the others?

With Ryerson, what stands out for me all the time is the students. They’re such a creative, innovative, entrepreneurial group of students that [are] very supportive, and it’s been really a delight to work at Ryerson … It’s a [very] kind community.

What do you think your role has been in changing Ryerson’s image?

The role of a president is a lot of sales and marketing. I think that I have always paid attention to building the reputation of the university, and put that as a primary objective, whether that was the members of the royal society or attracting the best faculty and students. The reputation is not a function of the president, but is a function of everyone at the university, so in some sense you are the chief cheerleader.

Editor's Note


Professors Jane Howell and Charlice Hurst have very different backgrounds and life experiences, but they are close collaborators and warm friends.

An intellectual with the gloves off
24 May 2003 | The Globe and Mail pg. F.3| by John Allemang.

Tellingly, the former World Bank economist didn't just parade these hard facts as essential truths, but contrasted them with the soft-centred nostalgia felt by academics with a more sentimental education. "There's a tendency on the part of Western intellectuals to idealize rural life, and poor rural life, in developing countries."....His model of a university, which sounds a lot like a roundtable gathering at the White House, is of "a tough-minded place where there's a tough-minded clash of ideas, from which better ideas emerge." It's not an institution for the faint-hearted, and you can see that much of his impatience with the people and ideas he's confronted at Harvard have as much to do with a perceived lack of intellectual rigour as with their positioning on the spectrum of truth.

Harvard Radical
August 24, 2003 | The New York Times Magazine p28 col 01 (165 col)| by James Traub.

The fundamental reason Summers wants to change the undergraduate curriculum is that, as he explains, the nature of knowledge has changed so radically. Summers often says that one of the two most important phenomena of the last quarter-century is the revolution in the biological sciences. And yet, as he also often says, while it is socially unacceptable at an elite university to admit that you haven't read a Shakespeare play, no stigma at all attaches to not knowing the difference between a gene and a chromosome or the meaning of exponential growth. Summers compares this ignorance to the provinciality of never having traveled abroad. He wants every student to live in science for a while and not just to do some sightseeing in a course designed to help you ''think like a biologist.'' Summers is not categorically opposed to the ''ways of thinking'' approach. ''The hard question,'' he said, ''is the line between learning a lot of science in one area and surveying more broadly but less deeply and thus less close to the genuine professional enterprise.''

At MBA Schools, Indians Go to the Top
July 29, 2010 | Wall Street Journal | By Tripti Lahiri. It’s
not surprising to see Indian-origin candidates take the top position at
business schools. For decades Indian students have made up a large
proportion of the student bodies at many international business
schools—it was viewed as a more interesting option to studying
engineering or medicine, Mr. Nohria said in Mumbai on Thursday on his
first visit to India since his appointment.

And many of them have gone on to climb the ranks at B-schools, holding
top faculty positions. In fact, there might have been three Indians
heading top 10 B-schools in the U.S., but Sally Blount replaced Dipak
Jain as the head of the Kellogg Graduate School of Management in

Although a few are starting to question the importance Indians place on
the degree, B-school remains a popular next step for Indians with
bachelor’s degrees. And vice-versa, Indians remain an important source
of talent (and fees) for the schools.

Empire State of Mind - The Accidental Giant of Higher Education -
July 19, 2010| NYT | By PETER APPLEBOME. Nancy Zimpher,
formerly the president of the University of Cincinnati, took over as
chancellor of the State University of New York. With 64 campuses and a
presence in every one of the state’s 62 counties, SUNY is the largest
state university system in the country, and one of Zimpher’s major goals
is to bring the collective impact framework to New York in a big way.

Working with a wide range of civic leaders and groups, Zimpher and her
colleagues have already helped catalyze partnerships in Albany, Buffalo
and Rochester, as well as in Harlem and Brooklyn. Others are in the

Educating Professionals
Jan-Feb 2009| Harvard Magazine | focus on training leaders:
through their development of judgment in establishing priorities; their
entrepreneurial vision in finding opportunities to solve problems; their
skill in communicating; their values and integrity; and their
commitment to action. .... Leaders are accountable for more than
themselves; they must be both willing and able to accept that

In the end, Faust said, education throughout the University must be
informed by the recognition that “[L]eadership is a means; it is not an
end in itself.…Leaders exist to serve followers, and leaders’ successes
must be measured not simply by their power to move others, but by the
directions in which they take those who follow them.”

An Innovator in Allston
Jul-Aug 2010 | Harvard Magazine | Nitin Nohria named dean of
Harvard Business School. He posed the core question for HBS this way:
“Are we educating people who have the competence and character to
exercise leadership in business?”...2 autumns ago, speaking at HBS’s
centennial global business summit (see “Educating Professionals,”
January-February 2009, page 58), President Faust invoked Peter Drucker’s
parable of the stonecutters: one simply making a living, a second
trying to be the country’s best stonecutter, and the third aspiring to
build a cathedral. The vision of the second, a pure individualist, Faust
described as “incomplete” and “a kind of blindness.” A commitment to
educating leaders for the world, she maintained, compelled HBS to look
to “purposes beyond one’s self….Leaders exist to serve followers,” she
continued, “and leaders’ success must be measured not simply by their
power to move others, but by the directions in which they take those who
follow them.”
