Abstract

Creating a culture of academic leadership requires a commitment from faculty to first empower themselves to be effective leaders. Administrative support offers an additional foundation for establishing the type of learning environment that enables faculty members and students to thrive as leaders in this ever-changing society. Strategies for faculty empowerment that lead to students’ positive perceptions of leadership may be easily integrated into an academic culture when leadership concepts are understood and embraced. Academicians have the responsibility of exhibiting effective leadership and teaching optimal leadership. Establishing a leadership narrative where everyone can participate in everyday leadership will have a positive and lasting effect beyond the classroom walls.
