Business people have much to offer colleges and universities, because of the many similarities between the two kinds of organizations. They are used to managing budgets, devising strategies, responding to changing environments, and many other activities that are crucial to universities. It is the synergy between business perspectives and academic perspectives that has the potential to dramatically change universities for the better. This chapter provides specific recommendations for how businesspeople can more effectively help academic institutions though board service or other academic or administrative leadership roles. Also provided is a real-world example of public/private partnerships, the transition of UNC Student Stores to Barnes and Noble College, and leveraging these collaborations to implement change in higher education.
