Abstract

This book is about leadership for sustainability; how and why sustainability can be relevant, vital or a distraction to the higher education (HE) It provides a much-needed reference for any manager or academic leader in HE seeking to initiate or lead a sustainability agenda in their institution. It is also intended for any academic, student researcher or policy maker researching (or teaching) leadership or organizational theory, combining the use of theoretical constructs with practice-based experience.

Unlike other texts, this book brings together, in a logical and structured way, the wide range of influences. and considerations that need to be understood to succeed in implementing sustainability in HE, including:
1. an understanding of what is (and is not) sustainability and the range of perspectives through which to view it
2. activities and actions undertaken in HE to date
3. influencers on the sustainability agenda, whether policy or demand led, external or internal
4. barriers to success.

The author team draws on a wealth of experience from our careers in various posts in HE. This experience underpins one of the key assumptions which shape this book, namely that it is essential for universities to remain financially viable, but hopefully thrive.
