Administration is a means to accomplish the end - advancing knowledge through education. However, a meeting of college administrators, from presidents to department heads, will always produce the side remark, "I would be much better off if I were just a professor teaching or doing research instead of worrying about all this which we aren't going to solve anyway. Those full-time professors are much better off than I." Not many of these soul-searching administrators would change their situation if they had a choice, but their remarks do point up that the opportunity to move from teaching and research to administration is a two-sided coin.
