Using Servant Leadership provides an instructive guide for how faculty members can engage in servant leadership with administrators, students, and community members. By utilizing a wide range of research and through a series of case studies, Angelo J. Letizia demonstrates how, with a bit of creative thinking, the ideals of servant leadership can work even in the fractious, cash-strapped world of contemporary higher education. Furthermore, he considers how these concepts can be implemented in pedagogy, research, strategic planning, accountability, and assessment. This book points the way to a more humane university, one that truly serves the public good.

Land-grant colleges and universities occupy a special place in the landscape of American higher education. Publicly funded agricultural and technical educational institutions were first founded in the mid-nineteenth century with the Morrill Act, which established land grants to support these schools. They include such prominent names as Cornell, Maryland, Michigan State, MIT, Ohio State, Penn State, Rutgers, Texas A&M, West Virginia University, Wisconsin, and the University of California?in other words, four dozen of the largest and best public universities in America. Add to this a number of historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) and tribal colleges?in all, almost 300 institutions. Their mission is a democratic and pragmatic one: to bring science, technology, agriculture, and the arts to the American people. In this book, Stephen M. Gavazzi and E. Gordon Gee discuss present challenges to and future opportunities for these institutions. Drawing on interviews with 27 college presidents and chancellors, Gavazzi and Gee explore the strengths and weaknesses of land-grant universities while examining the changing threats they face. Arguing that the land-grant university of the twenty-first century is responsible to a wide range of constituencies, the authors also pay specific attention to the ways these universities meet the needs of the communities they serve. Ultimately, the book suggests that leaders and supporters should become more fiercely land-grant in their orientation; that is, they should work to more vigorously uphold their community-focused missions through teaching, research, and service-oriented activities. Combining extensive research with Gee’s own decades of leadership experience, Land-Grant Universities for the Future argues that these schools are the engine of higher education in America?and perhaps democracy’s best hope. This book should be of great interest to faculty members and students, as well as those parents, legislators, policymakers, and other area stakeholders who have a vested interest in the well-being of America’s original public universities.

This three-article dissertation explored various aspects of improving the quality of online teaching. Chapter Two was a quantitative study, and investigated the relationship between online instructor self-efficacy and student satisfaction at a private university in the northwestern United States. Chapter Three was a multiple case study which investigated how teachers who are familiar with servant leadership principles perceive servant leadership traits as able to transition to and have influence in the higher education online classroom. It identified what online learning looks like when the teacher uses the servant leadership model. In addition, the presence of mentoring in servant teacher online courses was established, and servant leadership was recommended as an effective pedagogical approach for higher education online learning. Chapter Four investigated the relationship between servant leadership training and instructor self-efficacy in terms of technology, pedagogy, and subject matter. This data was compared with teaching presence, cognitive presence and social presence (as measured by the CoI) in higher education online learning to identify any correlations. Chapter Five tied the three research articles together, concluding that servant leadership is an effective pedagogical approach with similarities with best practices and principles of andragogy. When teachers are trained and online programs are developed using a foundation of servant leadership principles, the result is increased mentoring, more effective online instruction, and increased satisfaction and success for students.

Qualitative Inquiry in Higher Education Organization and Policy Research provides readers with the theoretical foundations and innovative perspectives for undertaking qualitative research to influence policy and practice discussions. Well-known chapter authors discuss innovative strategies for investigating complex problems, helping readers understand how research can consider the culture of the institution, administrative hierarchy, students, faculty, and external constituencies. From both an organizational and policy perspective, chapter pairings explore a range of methodologies, including ethnography, case study, critical qualitative inquiry, and the notion of "grit." This volume explores how qualitative inquiry can advance understanding of organizational inequities in higher education, and it offers graduate students and educational researchers the tools to improve the organizational function of institutions while contributing to meaningful change.

Ohne ein gutes, verlässliches Team könnten viele Führungskräfte ihre Ziele niemals erreichen. Doch leider werden viele Teams von internen Machtkämpfen, Streitigkeiten und den daraus resultierenden Misserfolgen ausgebremst – und die Führungskräfte schaffen es dann oft auch mit Leistungsanreizen oder Belohnungen nicht, ein Team wieder in die Spur zu bekommen. Doch warum sind hier manche Vorgesetzte oft erstaunlich hilflos? Die Antwort wurde Simon Sinek während einer Unterhaltung mit einem General des Marine Corps offensichtlich. Dieser erläuterte die Tradition: "Offiziere essen immer zuletzt." Was in der Kantine noch symbolisch gemeint ist, wird auf dem Schlachtfeld todernst: Gute Anführer opfern ihren eigenen Komfort, sogar ihr eigenes Leben, zum Wohl derer, die ihnen unterstehen. Sinek überträgt diese Tradition auf Unternehmen, wo sie bedeutet, dass die Führungskraft einen sogenannten Safety Circle, einen Sicherheitskreis, bilden muss, der das Team vor Schwierigkeiten von außen schützt. Nur so bildet sich im Unternehmen eine vertrauensvolle Atmosphäre. Der Sicherheitskreis führt zu stabilen, anpassungsfähigen und selbstbewussten Teams, in denen sich jeder zugehörig fühlt und in denen alle Energie darauf verwendet wird, die gemeinsamen Ziele zu erreichen. Chefs, die bereit sind, als letzte zu essen, werden mit zutiefst loyalen Kollegen belohnt und schaffen so konfliktfreie, motivierte und erfolgreich Teams.
