This study examined the organizational and institutional variables that influence the leadership styles of directors of campus-based women's centers at public and private four-year universities in the southeast United States. The researcher examined the leadership frame (or frames), as measured by Bolman and Deal's (1990) Leadership Orientations Instrument (Self), used by the organizational leaders of campus-based women's centers. This non-experimental descriptive study utilized both quantitative and descriptive methods of analysis. The quantitative component relied on the chi-square statistical test to measure the relationships between a director's leadership preferences and five institutional variables. Descriptive statistics were used to describe the use of the four leadership frames and determine the frame(s) preference of campus-based women center directors. It was determined that no statically significant relationship existed between a director's leadership frame(s) and the selected institutional variables.
