A Comparison of African-American and Anglo-European Community College Leaders.
Rouse, Lawrence Lee
The purpose of this dissertation is to compare the perceived transformational leadership competencies of African-American and Anglo-European community college vice presidents and deans in Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia. The Multifactor College Leadership Questionnaire II (MCLQ-II) was used to survey the self-perception of community college leaders and the perceptions of followers/team members who work with these leaders. There are five orientation sub-scales of the MCLQ-II: intuition, influence, people, motivation and ethics. The survey respondents included 51 African-American and 41 Anglo-European vice-presidents and deans, as well as 146 followers/team members (38 African-American, 102 Anglo-European, and 6 of unknown ethnic background). Findings suggest that African-American and Anglo-European leaders have no significant differences in self-perception of leadership competency for four of the five sub-scales. For the fifth sub-scale, ethics, African-American leaders ranked their competencies significantly higher than their Anglo-European counterparts. Findings also suggest that followers/team members perceive no significant differences in transformational leadership competencies of African-American and Anglo-European leaders. Based on these findings, further research on ethnic differences in the ethics sub-scale is recommended. Appendices include the MCLQ-II, cover letters sent to participants, and a confidentiality statement. (Contains 26 tables and 60 references.) (RDG)
