      Setliff, Richard C. Jr.
      This study examined students' perceptions of certain servant leader behaviors associated with either typical or outstanding instruction. F ive servant leadership dimensions were considered: altruistic calling, emotional healing, wisdom, persuasive mapping, and organizational stewardship . Two groups of 3 00 students attending a midsized university located in the M idwest participated in the survey. The instrument used was based upon the Servan t Leadership Questionnaire developed by Barbuto and Wheeler (2006). Four of five servant leader qualities: altruistic calling, wisdom, organizational stewardship, and persuasive mapping had some measure of explanatory power. A low participation rate by students adversely affected observed statistical power and was a limitation to this study.
