All of the key parties have an important role to play in rebuilding the partnership. Trustees and policymakers must be careful not to micro-manage; allow Chancellors to build their own teams; respect the views of the faculty and allow the Chancellor the leeway to gain the support of the faculty; support research as well as teaching and be cognizant of the fact that politics are deeply ingrained in the discussion; Administrators must stay close to students, preferably by teaching; embrace the role of faculty member; stay suspicious of administration; engage with academic medicine; and raise funds for true priorities. Faculty must teach with enthusiasm; participate in the community; realistically assess the job prospects of your graduate students; and do not seek administrative positions to further academic goals—programmatic endowment is better. Students should do their homework before applying to college; engage the community once you are admitted; clarify your goals for the college experience and ask for help when you need it.

Keywords:   partnership, avoiding micro-management, importance of teaching, administrators should teach
