Thomas J. Sergiovanni (1937–2012) was Lillian Radford Professor of Education at Trinity University, San Antonio, Texas, where he taught in the school leadership program and in the five-year teacher education program. Sergiovanni received his master's degree from Teachers College, Columbia University, his Doctor of Education degree from the University of Rochester, and honorary degrees from the University of San Diego and State University of New York.

Prior to joining the faculty at Trinity, he served on the faculty of education administration at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, for 19 years and chaired the department for 7 years. A former associate editor of Educational Administration Quarterly, Sergiovanni also served on the editorial boards of several professional journals, including Journal of Personnel Evaluation in Education and Journal of Educational Research. He authored, co-authored, and edited more than 30 books on all aspects of educational leadership, as well as important articles and chapters.

Sergiovanni, invited to the KDP Laureate Chapter in 1994, was highly regarded in the educational leadership field and was seen as a visionary about what schools could be and the roles they could play in the world. He insisted that educators be committed to the integrity of the work of educating the young. A colleague described Sergiovanni as β€œan educator with exceptionally high values and ideals. He cares about his work even to the point of passion.”
