The book falls into three parts: "The University President," in which Father Malloy explains the president's role; "Academia and the Life of the Mind," in which he examines the practices of teaching and scholarship in the contemporary university setting; and "The Collegiate World," in which he comments on the nonacademic facets of college life, including athletics, residentiality, and religion.
Father Malloy writes in a warm, personable tone, often touching on his own life experiences. He is not afraid to voice strong opinions, but he does so in a compassionate manner that speaks well of him both as a priest and a president, and that makes for an eminently readable book. Notre Dame alumni are among the most dedicated and loyal in America, and will enjoy reading about Father Malloy's experiences.
