Abstract

This study aimed to evaluate the effect of components of participative leadership style on the academic performance of students at the University of Tehran, Iran. This descriptive and correlational research was performed on 43 senior managers of the university selected through random cluster sampling using the Morgan table. In addition, data were collected applying the standard questionnaire of ‘are we making progress?’ by Malcolm Baldrige. Moreover, data analysis was performed using Pearson’s correlation coefficient. The test results confirmed the majority of the research hypotheses. The organisation can provide mutual trust and respect between senior leaders and faculty members of the university and, thereby, improve academic performance of students by creating a suitable environment for applying supportive and participative leadership in the university.
