Abstract: The purpose of this study was to provide a framework that will help higher education leaders and scholars better understand and give leadership in college and university settings. Two major investigative methodologies were employed. The first was analytical/synthetical in nature and entailed the analysis of frameworks of Erving Goffman and Seymour B. Sarason, the revision and integration of those frameworks with the writer's autobiographical understandings, and the creation of a new framework — a framework for higher education leader performance. The second was that of a case study in which the framework was applied to the observed performance of three chief academic officers. The observations were made by the researcher during the course of a higher education administration practicum. A detailed journal of those observations was kept and used as the major resource for this portion of the study.
