Mary Lou Higgerson, Ph.D., vice president for Academic Affairs and dean of the college, Baldwin-Wallace College

Finally a thoughtful book on servant leadership with direct application to higher education. Includes many strategies for developing servant leadership in self, others, and organizations. Dr. Gary L. Filan, executive director, Chair Academy

With Servant Leadership for Higher Education Dan Wheeler brings the gauzy platitudes sometimes associated with servant leadership down to earth in a set of field-tested principles. I finished the book fantasizing about how much better off our colleges and universities would be if our leaders behaved like this! Jon Wergin, professor of educational studies, Ph.D. in Leadership & Change Program, Antioch University
