Reflections of South African University Leaders: 1981-2014

Reflections is collection of voices of nine past South African university leaders that harnesses the insights and knowledge about academic leadership that they garnered in a time of great change in higher education. During this period of transition, the sector benefitted from visionary and strong leaders who discovered different ways of enhancing the higher education institutions they led. The myriad challenges faced at the various institutions required different types of leadership and management, and the leaders’ accounts reveal how they negotiated such difficulties, sometimes successfully, and other times less so. In each of the accounts, there are reflections, made with the benefit of hindsight, on the essential elements of good leadership, and a sharing of the wisdom gained through direct experience. This collection will be of interest to the general reader, to academics and students, and to current and future leaders in the education sector as a whole.
