I've attended several panels spotlighting college presidents, and the majority said the job just came to them, with only a few stating that becoming a president was their goal and something they always knew they wanted to do. What's this group's experience?

That is exactly why I did as well-so many years of on the job training-I needed praxis-theory and practice-

@Anthony - if we can't get to your question I will say that I didn't intend to be a college president. I felt and still do that this work is a calling and I was serving, with great satisfaction, where I was until one day II got a call asking me to step in as Lassen President.

Thank you Doug. That is very similar to what I've heard. The position presented itself, and was the right fit and move at the time.
