University vice-chancellors not effective leaders, survey finds

A survey by the Guardian newspaper has found that academic and administrative staff at universities feel that their vice-chancellors do not spend enough time learning how the institution works.

Many of the survey’s 1,079 respondents felt that their vice-chancellors were too focused on lobbying and external relations, and nearly half of respondents said that they do not think their vice-chancellor was an effective leader.

Other respondents referred to the high pay of vice-chancellors, with one saying their vice-chancellor was so highly paid “he could never be value for money”.
