Leadership at a Small Liberal Arts School

by Lonergan, James Christian

Abstract

This paper analyzes leadership at a top tier liberal arts school. Despite previous literature suggesting that different roles and leadership styles are correlated, this study found preferred leadership styles similar across different roles at a small liberal arts college (Darling & Leffel, 2010). After administering a leadership survey to college administration, the Board of Trustees, and student leaders, no differences between the three groups could be found. The three groups significantly favored self-focused factors, then future-focused, followed by people-focused, and finally task-focused. Also, the terms found in the organization’s published leadership philosophy were given more priority than the median for the respective category, suggesting that the school leaders act as similar leaders with unified ideas.
