Editorial Reviews


"[This book] will help academics justify reengagement and recommitment to their institutions and to the good to which they instinctively know they should be dedicated."
—David W. Leslie, Chancellor Professor of Education, The College of William and Mary

"Leadership in Place provides ground-breaking insights into the practice of leadership in higher education. The constraints on authority in cultures that select for people who place a premium on their own autonomous research and teaching pose special demands for leadership, and Wergin's volume sheds penetrating light into these challenges. An immensely practical book."
—Ronald A. Heifetz, King Hussein Bin Talal Lecturer in Public Leadership, and Co-Founder, Center for Public Leadership, John F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University

From the Back Cover

This innovative look at academic leadership argues that it's time to rethink how our colleges and universities are organized and led. The concept of leadership in place calls for a shift in attitude about leaders and leadership—from a hierarchical view that academic leadership flows from a leadership position, to a more lateral view that leadership roles are available to everyone.

The contributors to this book—academic leaders from diverse sectors of the academy—tell their stories about leading in place, and each contributes a useful lesson. The book's final chapter integrates these lessons into an agenda for what higher education must do to create conditions under which leadership in place is the norm rather than the exception.
