In a context of low levels of trust in leaders in the wider society, this article examines how far there has been ‘contamination’ from that environment within universities. It records examples of poor leadership against three issues: corruption, competence and inequality. The analysis draws on empirical studies from the UK in a period of crisis, fifty years of experience of leaders as a professional within higher education, running the national programme for potential top managers and other courses around the world, and a recent synthesis of reports from the UK Leadership Foundation for Higher Education. The lessons are transferable to other national, and international contexts.
