Gen. Charles Krulak, president of Birmingham-Southern College in Alabama, says his military experience taught him that strength of character, moral courage and integrity are important characteristics of any leader. As a college president, Krulak is working to instill those values in students, staff and faculty, he says in this Q-and-A. "The specific traits, methods, and even 'tricks' that help make leadership effective are nothing without that basis in character, which is why I feel that's one of the most important things we help develop as educators," Krulak notes.
