The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between leadership style and motivation among faculty members in two public universities in the Republic of the South Sudan. The researcher examined this issue by surveying and interviewing faculty members in two public universities in the Republic of South Sudan, a total of 67 for quantitative sample, and four for the qualitative sample. Higher education institutions in the Republic of the South Sudan have been losing experienced faculty members to other sectors of the economy and to immigration to western countries. As the new nation is formed, they will need research to inform them to build strong higher education institutions. The purpose of this study is to examine the relationship between leadership style and motivation among faculty members in two public universities in the Republic of South Sudan. The secondary purpose is to examine the influence of age, education, gender, tenure, type of university, and employment status on the relationship between leadership style and motivation. Using Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire (MLQ) the relationship between leadership style and outcomes reflected the one found in the literature (Bass & Avolio, 2004). Little correlation was found between MLQ and motivation as measured by Work Motivation Scale (WMS). Interviewees reported that their strongest motivation to stay in their jobs was the opportunity to grow professionally with further studies.
