Whether in a local community, an educational institution, or a global organization, the key to addressing the current crisis in American public life is genuine moral leadership. Moral leadership is anchored in intellectual and ethical integrity, a vision of and commitment to the public good and personal investment in transformative community. Drawing on a lifetime of witnessing, emulating, and nurturing such leadership, Robert Michael Franklin proposes a model for moral leadership and ways in which readers in any context can discover and foster those qualities in themselves.
