Seven Practices of Enlightened Leadership in Higher Education

A Case Study of Austin Peay State University


This is the story about how truly enlightened leadership combined with authentic faculty engagement has the power to transform college culture and amplify student success. In this report, we describe the general climate of Austin Peay and how what we heard from faculty and staff there differed from what we usually hear. We also elevate the voices of administrators, faculty and staff at the college, as we illuminate the leadership practices that led to this heartening divergence from the norm.
