All college presidents are invited to participate by December, 2012, however  is targeting a few hundred institutions because they are large or expensive. If you think there is a college president who should be on this list, please tell us who and why.

If we contact a college president then we display the person’s name on the table below. If we do not know how to contact someone and you do, then click on the “Tell Us” link and tell us how.

The Status field will have one of the following values:

  • Targeted – We chose to include them.
  • Suggested – One of our readers suggested they be included.
  • Volunteered – The president himself/herself offered to participate.
  • Invited – When we announce the question each president will be invited to respond.
  • Declined – The president declines to participate.
  • Answered – An essay response has been received and is awaiting publication.

Once the answers are published then the status will become either:

  • View Answer – A link to the essay submitted.
  • Ask – Suggestions on how you might ask the president directly.
