Item description for Leadership in Place: How Academic Professionals Can Find Their Leadership Voice (JB - Anker) by Jon F. Wergin...

Foreword by David W. Leslie

In this innovative look at academic leadership, Jon Wergin argues that it's time to rethink how our colleges and universities are organized and led. The concept of leadership in place calls for a shift in attitude about leaders and leadership from a hierarchical view that academic leadership flows from a leadership position, to a more lateral view that leadership roles are available to everyone.

The contributors to this book, academic leaders from diverse sectors of the academy, tell their stories about leading in place, and each contributes a useful lesson. The book s final chapter integrates these lessons into an agenda for what higher education must do to create conditions under which leadership in place is the norm rather than the exception.

Contents include:

  • Why we need leadership in place
  • Legacies of leadership in place
  • (Leading?) from the core
  • A case study of leading by part-time faculty
  • Creative redesign for change
  • Leadership stymied
  • Sharing leadership in an academic health center school of nursing
  • Following the leader and leading the followers
  • Learning to lead in place
  • Leadership as place
