Do Fraternities and Sororities Still Enhance Socially Responsible Leadership? Evidence from the Fourth Year of College
Hevel, Michael S.; Martin, Georgianna L.; Pascarella, Ernest T.
Journal of Student Affairs Research and Practice, v51 n3 p233-245 2014
We use a longitudinal national dataset to explore the effects of fraternity and sorority membership on students' socially responsible leadership in the fourth year of college. Controlling for a variety of potentially confounding variables, we find no net effect. These findings run counter to an earlier study based on the same students that found positive effects of fraternity and sorority membership on socially responsible leadership in the first year of college. We discuss implications for practice and research.
