The stimulus for this report was a question from the Leadership Foundation for Higher Education (LFHE); what do we know about leadership in higher education from our research? The report explores what, if anything, might be claimed about leadership in higher education. It considers key questions:
- What is the knowledge base on which claims might be made?
- Does the higher education context demand a distinctive approach?
- Who are the leaders in higher education?
- How do they operate and how effectively?
