Abstract:

An analysis of perceived leadership practices of mass communications and journalism department chairs at 33 southeastern colleges and universities found significant differences between chairs in public and private institutions, chairs appointed to the position and those hired through a competitive process, and chairs with varying degrees of experience. The chairs responded to surveys that addressed Kouzes and Posner’s 5 effective leadership practices. The most prevalent leadership practice was Enabling Others to Act.
