Abstract

Though U.S. higher education has long sought to prepare students as leaders, a significant gap exists in leadership education literature and published research regarding ways to teach leadership through a social justice lens. Kathy L. Guthrie and Vivechkanand S. Chunoo’s Changing the Narrative: Socially Just Leadership Education explores the evolving role of leadership education and development within U.S. higher education. The book includes voices and perspectives of experts from various backgrounds, professional experiences, and institution types. Contributing authors discuss the importance of linking leadership education and social justice work and provide curricular and cocurricular examples to implement at different types of higher education institutions. Changing the Narrative challenges readers to deconstruct oppressive systems that still exist on college campuses and reimagine what it means to teach and engage in leadership education.
