A discussion of US higher education at the time of the transition from an industrial to a knowledge‐based economy. This is the time when people need to be educated to cope with not just one job for life but a series of different jobs demanding different skills and aptitudes. Universities and colleges have to gear up to meet this demand. One of the big challenges is having the necessary leadership within these institutions to effect the necessary changes.
