MSL2020 and Beyond!

It is that time of year again—time to update everyone with the current MSL data collection plans!

It is amazing that it has been almost 2 years since we were deep into preparation for the MSL2018. With nearly 80 schools participating in 2018, we ventured into a period of Off-Year data collections, with some schools participating in the MSL during the Fall 2018 and Spring 2019 semesters!

Over the past couple of years, the MSL has had some significant International growth…

New MSL2018 Fall Data Collection Announced!

The Multi-Institutional Study of Leadership has been studying college students for over a decade now - and every data collection has taken place during the Winter/Spring terms.  Typically data collection takes place between the end of January and late April of the data collection year.

The MSL has started to grow - with the most recent MSL2018 collecting data from two separate schools in the Southern Hemisphere - in Chile and Australia.  For obvious reasons, the January-April data collection timeline is not ideal for such schools.

And, from time to time, we have also received interest in U.S. based schools for conducting a Fall term data collection.

As a result of this interest, the MSL has decided to offer a limited space MSL2018 Fall data collection!  This data collection will launch during the month of October, 2018.  Neumann University - our Fall data collection trailblazer - will be using the Fall data collection to build a strong baseline from which to evaluate future programs.

We are looking for a few schools who would like to join Neumann in this first Fall 2018 cohort.  If your institution is interested, here are some guidelines:

  • Enrollment (and payment) for this Pilot Fall 2018 study is required before July 31, 2018.  Due to tight schedules and vacations planned, there will be no extensions on this deadline.
  • The full price to participate is $5,900 - no discounts will be offered for the Pilot Fall data collection.
  • Custom Questions will be offered - but must be submitted no later than July 31, 2018.
  • Data collection must start between October 1 - 31, 2018.
  • There will be no master IRB for this effort - if a school requires IRB/ethics oversight, they must run that through their own local IRB.

If this is of interest to you - you may Enroll Now!  When prompted, just indicate that you would like to participate in the MSL2018 Fall (October) data collection.
