This dissertation studied 306 Ghanaian immigrants (in two groups; those in the United States for 4 to 10 years and those in the United States 11 to 60 years) located in the northeastern, midwestern, and southern part of the United States to explore any associations between the immigrants’ responses to servant leadership attributes of agapao love, empowerment, and humility and U.S. mainstream culture. This study was quantitative, nonexperimental. and correlational and conducted using the SLAI (Servant Leadership Assessment Instrument) for servant leadership attributes and VIA (Vancouver Acculturation Index) for U.S. mainstream culture. Results from the correlation studies, using SPSS Version 26 and Pearson (r) coefficients, indicated there was a statistically significant positive correlation between the responses of Ghanaian immigrants who were in the United States for 4 to 10 years and 11 to 60 years to servant leadership attributes of agapao love, empowerment, and humility and their responses to U.S. mainstream culture.
