The Newest Offering in the Higher Education Leadership Movement: A Model Campus-Wide Residential Program for Faculty and Staff
Scott, Susan M.; Tolar, Mary Hale
Educational Considerations, v37 n1 p25-29 Fall 2009
In recent decades, leadership scholars have bemoaned the lack of true leaders and leadership education at all levels and issued the fabled "cry for leadership." Although institutions of higher learning have been engaged in guiding the leaders of society since their inception, they offered no formalized programs or courses until relatively recently. Between 1990 and 1998, the W.K. Kellogg Foundation funded a study of 31 collegiate leadership development programs and concluded that they need a new generation of leaders who could bring about positive change in local, national, and international affairs. Although not one of the schools studied, Kansas State University followed the development of the field of leadership studies. This article reviews the recent emphases by institutions of higher education on leadership development and describes a model program for a population not yet widely addressed: faculty and staff.
