Institutions' Espoused Values Perceived by Chinese Educational Leaders

Nicholas Sun-Keung Pang, Ting Wang

Research output: A Conference proceeding or a Chapter in BookChapter


This paper presents some key findings of a quantitative study which assessed a
group of Chinese educational leaders’ value orientations. A survey instrument “The
Institutional Values Inventory” was used to investigate their perspectives on the
values espoused by their institutions in terms of traditional Confucian ethics and
values of hierarchical relationship, collectivism, humanism, and self-cultivation. It
discusses implications for leadership preparation and practice in an increasingly
globalized context
