In 2009, the Multi-Institutional Study of Leadership – Institutional Survey (MSL-IS) was administered to all participating schools. While the MSL explores student learning outcomes in relation to a broad set of collegiate experiences, the MSL-IS examines structural and programmatic aspects that support student leadership development on college campuses.
Examining the Design and Delivery of Collegiate Student Leadership Development Programs outlines 10 major findings from the study. Dr. Julie Owen illustrates how institutions vary on theoretical foundations, financial and human resources available, and assessment methods used in relation to leadership development initiatives. Not only does she explain these finding and their significance for leadership development offerings, but she also provides recommended actions for each finding.
The full report is available in the Reports and Publications section of the website. We hope this report can provide new insight into how institutions can effectively support leadership development programs on campuses throughout the nation.
