Description

Increased activism, student demands for more inclusive environments, specifically anti-racist cultures that dismantle systemic structures of oppression, white supremacy and racism require 21st century university leaders to be more emotionally intelligent and responsive to emergent campus issues. The times demand courageous leaders.

This book offers experienced and emerging leaders a window into understanding the deep intersections of identity and professional practice as well as guideposts for individual leadership development during contested times. Emerging leaders at the forefront of transformative efforts for social justice, diversity, and educational equity on college and university campuses have new opportunities in how they shape institutional spaces through collaboration and leading across campus constituencies. The chapters emphasize how identity manifests in the way we lead, supervise, make decisions, persuade, form relationships, and negotiate responsibilities each day. In this book the authors provide insight, examples, and personal narratives that explore how their identities, lens and commitments shaped their leadership and supported their courageous acts, a key component needed to respond to emergent issues.
