Waiting for a Crisis: Case Studies of Crisis Leaders in Higher Education
Muffet-Willett, Stacy L.
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, The University of Akron
This study examines the system of crisis leadership in higher education. Using case study methods, five crisis leadership participants were interviewed to develop a deep understanding of how they perceive their university crisis leadership system. Two participants were from a private institution, and three were from a public institution. Higher education factors that contribute to and detract from effective crisis leadership were found, as well as training aspects that contribute to and detract from effective crisis leadership processes. The case studies were analyzed using a cross- comparison method, and also according to a framework drawn from the research literature related to leadership, training, and crisis. The findings suggest a new practical model for use in higher education crisis leadership. [The dissertation citations contained here are published with the permission of ProQuest LLC.
