Abstract

Educational leaders need to be able to make outstanding decisions for planning, organizing and directing others. Herein, we discuss the impact of educational leadership in developing structural plans, cultural diversity, curriculum standards, and faculty engagement. Cultural diversity remains as an unresolved issue, but student’s negative attitudes associated with their differences in background and culture can be overcome with a proactive structure (prevention rather than cure!). University leaders should seek better learning environments through diversification to foster collaboration, creativity, equality, and innovation. Pre-planned curriculum standards and class outlines are critical to have a high quality education. A research-based and/or a coursework-based program can be carefully chosen according to the student’s needs (interests) prior to the implementation of such planned standards. Well-established standards must be periodically assessed to achieve expected outcomes. Approachable, honest, caring, inspirational, and respectful leaders promote faculty engagement to incorporate their experiences. The strategy of “telling benefits” and “speaking academic” are useful and effective to engage faculty in the ongoing activities and assessments. The leadership plan and the role of leaders must be both utilized to identify the deficiencies and the interests of current students; hence, achieving the educational organization’s mission, intended goals, and student success from the engagement.
