The yawning university leadership gap and the quest for quality management in higher education.

Mpaata, Kaziba A

Abstract:
This Article is on the Yawning University Leadership Gap. It evaluates the future possibility of having university leaders who can propel the concept of quality that is required in Uganda at present. It is observed in context that most professional employees in these universities, especially lecturers, have neglected their career expectations. Yet great and charismatic leaders of the time like Professor Kajubi, have elected to retire after serving diligently with front running behaviours. So there is a gap. This article concludes by warning that unless there is high career resilience,universities might find it hard to respond to the obstacles in the academic leadership work environment, hence the need for a strong career identity and insight from the younger academic staff.
