The nature of academic leadership at the colleges of the Royal University of Bhutan

Gyeltshen, Tashi (2015) The nature of academic leadership at the colleges of the Royal University of Bhutan. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


This qualitative case study explored leaders' and faculty members' perspectives on the nature of academic leadership at the Royal University of Bhutan (RUB) Colleges. The study revealed that academic leadership at the Colleges is a complex and emergent fusion of Western and Buddhist leadership. The research recommended a hybrid model intended to inform academic leadership development in Bhutanese higher education and contribute to the realisation of the Gross National Happiness philosophy. The model incorporates Buddhist-influenced leadership and other relevant leadership approaches and is expected to contribute to academic rigour through effective learning and research leadership.
