Leadership is considered to be one of the key success factors in any organisation. Nevertheless, the role of leaders in the armed forces is of predominant importance due to the their responsibility for combat missions and lives of their subordinates. The U.S. Army Doctrine Publication on leadership [ADP 6-22, 2012, p. 1] defines leadership as “the process of influencing people by providing purpose, direction, and motivation to accomplish the mission and improve the organisation”. Effective leadership is perceived as an indispensable element of any military capability and a multiplier of effects. An Army leader is “anyone who by virtue of assumed role or assigned responsibility inspires and influences people to accomplish organisational goals. Army leaders motivate people both inside and outside the chain of command to pursue actions, focus thinking and shape decisions for the greater good of the organisation” [ADP 6-22, 2012, p. 1].

The issue of social responsibility of higher education institutions (HEIs) has been explored and discussed  in recent years. In the studies conducted between 2007 and 2010, nearly 90% of the authorities of HEIs operating in Poland declared that they were familiar with the topic and considered it as an important issue. Similar opinions were shared by the majority among 122 heads of HEIs from 46 nations who participated in the study. Nowadays, we are able to draw some conclusions, predict possible directions of development and seek new solutions.
