This innovative look at academic leadership argues that it′s time to rethink how our colleges and universities are organized and led. The concept of leadership in place calls for a shift in attitude about leaders and leadership from a hierarchical view that academic leadership flows from a leadershipposition, to a more lateral view that leadershiproles are available to everyone.

The contributors to this book academic leaders from diverse sectors of the academy tell their stories about leading in place, and each contributes a useful lesson. The book′s final chapter integrates these lessons into an agenda for what higher education must do to create conditions under which leadership in place is the norm rather than the exception.
