Learn, Lead, Serve

A Civic Life

Thomas Ehrlich served in the federal administrations of six presidents, beginning with Kennedy in 1962. He was also Dean of Stanford Law School, Provost of the University of Pennsylvania, President of Indiana University, and one of the pioneers of the service-learning movement. Weaving together memorable family stories and valuable professional insights, Ehrlich tells how he developed the knowledge and skills to be a leader in both government and higher education, the lessons he learned in those roles, and the many ways he and his wife Ellen balanced family life and civic service along the way. Warmly written and brimming with fascinating, behind-the-scenes details, Learn, Lead, Serve is both a celebration of an accomplished career and an inspiring lodestar for those wanting to follow the path of public service.
