Abstract (Summary)

Demographic changes within the field of higher education have generated growing interest for the study of cultural intelligence and authentic leadership among academic leaders. The relationship between cultural intelligence (CQ) as a moderator to authentic leadership (AL) was examined through a quantitative study that included two surveys, the Expanded Cultural Intelligence Scale (E-CQS) and the Authentic Leadership Questionnaire (ALQ). Hypotheses were formulated to assess relationships between CQ and AL, and specific components of each set of data. The study's findings were directed toward academic leaders being equipped with both cultural intelligence and authentic leadership to effectively interact and support diverse multicultural populations within higher educational institutions.
