Abstract

Good leadership is essential for improved performance of public universities. However, despite signs of good leadership at Makerere University, performance of faculties at the University has continuously declined overtime. This has made the University’s status to continuously drop as seen in the Webmetrics rankings. This study therefore sought to examine the relationship between leadership and faculty performance and Makerere University. The study took the form of a cross sectional survey and correlation design to establish the relationships between leadership and faculty performance. A sample of 462 staff of Makerere University was taken.  Results reveal a significant positive relationship between leadership and faculty performance (r = .223**, p<.01). This implies that a unit change in leadership will cause a 22.3% improvement in faculty performance at the university. The regression analysis results also indicate that leadership significantly predicted faculty performance (Beta= .087, Sig. = .000). For universities to improve faculty performance, they should put in place policies that bring about good leadership.

Keywords: Leadership, Performance, Public Universities.
