Although leadership, especially position (elected or appointed) leadership,
is often discussed in terms of leader qualities and skills, the matter of
leadership as a responsibility of each professional receives little
attention (Wheatley, 2005). The campus and larger community can benefit from

responsibility in the areas of peace and security, social justice,
environment, prosperity, innovation/technology, health, and education.
