An essential, no-nonsense resource for academic leaders on effective leadership in higher education

In Reframing Academic Leadership, leadership experts Lee Bolman and Joan Gallos provide an essential resource for academic leaders. Adapting Bolman and Deal's Four Frames model, they focus on the effective leadership in higher education. Colleges and universities are special, and it takes special skills to lead and manage them well. This book is a provocative and pragmatic guide for deans, directors, provosts, and others involved in the important work of building higher education institutions and communities.

This edition contains substantial revisions and new material, including new cases and examples. You will gain a thorough understanding of how higher education leadership has changed in light of recent issues like the #MeToo movement, student debt, governing board dynamics, and the adjunctification of the professoriate. You'll learn how to craft the campus environment you envision, moving forward with practical tools and advice based on a solid conceptual framework.
* Learn to create a dynamic institution where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts
* Foster creativity and commitment campus-wide, forging alliances and partnerships in service of the mission
* Building shared vision and campus cultures that unite, inspire, and serving the larger goals of the academy and society
* Discover concrete ideas for tackling difficult issues, managing conflict, and rising to the next level of leadership excellence

Throughout this book, the authors integrate a powerful conceptual framework with rich and compelling real-world cases to support you in your search for the best in yourself and your institution. Reframing Academic Leadership is the resource for anyone seeking to understand, develop, and manage colleges and universities.
