This chapter aims to highlight the idea of leadership in higher education is a luxury when viewed against the backdrop of conflict and its direct impact on the lives and livelihoods of self, family, and friends. It suggests that the need for strong self-leadership is also clear. Council of At-Risk Academics (CARA) are an organisation who support higher education colleagues in crisis with help offered to academics around the world in immediate danger who have been forced into exile or who choose to remain and work in their home countries. CARA have been running support programmes for at-risk academics for nearly 90 years. Programmes such as the E-Learn Syria Soiree series provide an opportunity for colleagues to remain connected to their identities as academics and to have access to professional development opportunities.
