Abstract
The purpose of this study is to relate servant leaders’ attributes in university. As construction of leadership behavior that is multidimensional and unique compared to other leadership models, servant leadership emphasizes personal integrity in providing services to members of the organization and other stakeholders. Universities as higher education institutions are expected to adapt to the needs and demands of the environment by applying leadership style that gives more attention to the transformative progress of organization members. Given the complex environment and its social responsibility, leaders in the university must actively listen to its stakeholders to pursue organizational changes that fit with the need of wider publics while uploading high-quality academic outcomes and maintaining institutional values. This study focuses on the implementation of servant leadership at Tadulako University from seven dimensions of servant leadership through questionnaires distributed to 47 respondents. The results of this study indicate that leaders at various levels in Tadulako University have practiced servant leadership attributes moderately. At some points, leaders exhibit servant leadership behavior that shows their awareness of ‘creating value for the community’ and ‘empowering’ while still working on ‘put subordinates first’.
