Student Leadership in a Residential College: From Dysfunction to Effective Collaboration
Bloomdahl, Susana Contreras; Navan, Joy
Journal of College Student Development, v54 n1 p110-114 Jan-Feb 2013
This article depicts the intervention strategy of two faculty members on a dysfunctional student council in a residential college setting. The council demonstrated poor collaboration and productivity, which indicated signs of distrust. The group intervention helped to expose the students' lack of organization and need to learn more about each other. Ongoing intervention tactics included the use of simple trust-building and planning activities that helped to create more effective and productive organization and improved the leadership competence of student members.
