Series statement
Perspectives on leadership in higher education
"Sustainability is a complex concept, and the challenge of understanding it and applying it to a diverse, multi-agent organisational setting with its potentially conflicting priorities cannot be underestimated. Leadership for Sustainability in Higher Education provides key learning from the authors' extensive academic, leadership and professional experience in this area, supplemented with reference to key learning from other leaders and institutions. Janet Haddock-Fraser, Peter Rands and Stephen Scoffham bring together a wide range of influences and considerations, including: an understanding of the core constructs of leadership theory and sustainability, the range of perspectives through which to view and value sustainability, successful activities and actions undertaken by sustainability leaders in the higher education sector, models and methods to successfully implement sustainability that are new to the sector, influencers on the sustainability agenda, whether policy- or demand-led, external or internal, barriers to and enablers of success for leaders at individual, institutional and sector levels. These factors all combine to provide a framework for the reader within which to consider leadership for sustainability, both at an individual level and within the higher education culture and organisational norms. The authors provide a theoretical underpinning of key concepts, supplemented by examples of practice across the sector, both within the UK and internationally. Case studies from the UK, Australia, North America and India all bring to life the key opportunities and challenges of leading the sustainability agenda across a range of higher education institutions."--Bloomsbury Publishing
