Abstract or Summary
  • The purpose of this study is to name and give voice to the spiritual expression of leadership by women community college presidents. The following questions guided the research: (1) How do women community college presidents describe spirituality? (2) How does spirituality convey itself in the reflections, self-expression, and practice of the leadership of women community college presidents? and (3) How do women community college presidents honor which expressions of their spirituality they share with others and which they hold private? The research design included qualitative/interpretive methodology and phenomenological method with five women community college presidents selected using purposeful sampling. Individual themes for each participant were used to create five collective themes to describe the experience of being a woman who incorporates spiritual leadership into her practice as a community college president. The overall themes that emerged were: (1) integrating spirituality into work and life (2) being inclusive (3) building and nurturing relationships (4) engaging in self reflection and (5) doing work with meaning. This study provides insight into the experience of women community college presidents, explains how spiritual leadership is operationalized within the community college context, and offers implications for practice for future and current leaders, those who have the responsibility to select and support leaders, and those who train and prepare leaders.
