This article likens the territory of the chief executive in higher education to the physical science "field of forces"--an area "in constant change, laden with uncertainty and abmiguity" that seems, therefore, intensely, "human." Thus, in the sketch of "Professor X" in this article, we see contained in one university president's modus operandi an awareness that the job requires certainty "as much art as science or technology." This article was presented at the SCUP Academic Planning Workshop in Princeton on April 1975.
