Leadership: It's Not Just for Administrators
Colleges and universities need leadership at every level, but often faculty are reluctant to lend their leadership abilities because the notion of them as leaders is often at odds with their perception of themselves as academics. "It's not who we are. We're people who challenge and question all the time. When we associate leaders with authority, most faculty shy away from that," says Marlene Moore, dean of the college of arts and sciences at the University of Portland.
