Abstract

Leadership for Sustainability in Higher Education addresses one of the most pressing issues facing humankind in the twenty- rst century. It explores the role that leaders in higher education institutions can play in rising to that challenge through their activities, from teaching and research to estate management. e Introduction sets out and contextualizes the multiple dimensions of sustainability. e authors then take the reader through di erent levels from systems to processes, and then to individual attributes and behaviours. In so doing, they o er a thorough examination of the connections between appropriate theory on sustainability and on leadership, seen through the lens of higher education institutions and their practices. e book makes a compelling case for universities to stand up and take action. It is both inspirational and aspirational, o ering a strong intellectual framework for understanding the complexities and interrelated aspects of sustainability and the implications for leadership. Additionally, it is informed by the authors’ wealth of experience and primary research, which is rooted in contemporary practice. e case studies from Australia, India, the United Kingdom and the United States provide helpful illumination of how some of the theory has been applied in practice in institutions. is book is relevant to all leaders within higher education, whether new to leading sustainability initiatives within their institution or more seasoned.
