Rapidly changing global demographics demand visionary, collaborative, and culturally appropriate leadership practices on university campuses. In the face of widening gaps in academic achievement and socio-economic roadblocks, Culturally Responsive Leadership in Higher Education offers a new vision of leadership, where diversity is transformed from challenge into opportunity. This book offers a range of perspectives from culturally, racially, linguistically, ability, and gender-diverse contributors who demonstrate that effective leadership springs from those who engage, link theory to practice, and promote access, equity, and educational improvement for underserved students. Each chapter explores a critical higher educational leadership issue with feasible strategies and solutions. In this exciting book, theory and research-based chapters unpack culturally responsive leadership, revealing how higher education leaders in the U.S. and international contexts can improve their practice for social equity and educational change.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Culturally Responsive Leadership in Higher Education is a must-read book for all senior level and mid-level higher education leaders. A book like this is an imperative resource for leaders who seek to use data and critical theoretical concepts to reframe transformative leadership that will create a higher education system globally in the best interests of those who have been least served by graduate and undergraduate education."

--Laurence Parker, Professor of Educational Leadership and Policy, University of Utah

"The authors remind those in leadership roles that their practices can reproduce inequality or reflect agency for sustained social change and that their choices and actions have the power to improve the conditions of individuals and communities. Grassroots leaders and positional leaders at all levels will find the book useful in their quest to overcome challenges and restore the hope of higher education for all students."

--Sylvia Hurtado, Professor of Higher Education, University of California, Los Angeles

"The book is a marvelous tool for helping higher education leaders successfully address and support diverse employees and students. It fills a void in the current leadership literature by proactively focusing on cultural issues and responses to culture as opportunities, rather than as challenges."

--Jeffrey Pittman, Associate Professor and Program Chair of Student Affairs, Regent University

"The timing is right for a conversation about culturally responsive leadership in higher education. I'm not aware of another text quite like this one. I particularly appreciate the emphasis on theory and practice. The material is timely and its geographic/cultural perspective is not widely seen across mainstream academic texts."

-- Karri Holley, Associate Professor of Higher Education, University of Alabama
