Servant Leadership for Higher Education : Principles and Practices
by Daniel W. Wheeler




Overview -

"Given the myriad of complex problems facing higher education, it is difficult to imagine that an administrator at any level of the institution could be effective without engaging in servant leadership. Higher education is a service industry and, consequently, this text is a must read for practicing administrators who are committed to effective leadership." –Mary Lou Higgerson, Ph.D., vice president for Academic Affairs and dean of the college, Baldwin-Wallace College

"Finally a thoughtful book on servant leadership with direct application to higher education. Includes many strategies for developing servant leadership in self, others, and organizations." –Dr. Gary L. Filan, executive director, Chair Academy

"With Servant Leadership for Higher Education Dan Wheeler brings the gauzy platitudes sometimes associated with servant leadership down to earth in a set of field-tested principles. I finished the book fantasizing about how much better off our colleges and universities would be if our leaders behaved like this!"–Jon Wergin, professor of educational studies, Ph.D. in Leadership & Change Program, Antioch University

"This is a must read for anyone thinking about becoming an academic leader. In the academy, it is not about command and control–it's about serving your colleagues. Dan Wheeler's book 'nails it' as nothing is more critical to leaders than success in serving their colleagues." –Walter Gmelch, dean and professor, School of Education, University of San Francisco

Foreword by Kent Keith CEO, Greenleaf Center for Servant Leadership
