Strengthening College Students' Integrative Leadership Orientation by Building a Foundation for Civic Engagement and Multicultural Competence
Soria, Krista; Snyder, Seth; Reinhard, Alex P.
Journal of Leadership Education, v14 n1 p55-71 Win 2015
Integrative leadership theories are thriving in the literature, yet very few studies have explored individual characteristics of integrative leadership and conditions that may promote individuals' integrative leadership orientation. In particular, little is known about the factors that may promote undergraduate college students' development of an orientation toward integrative leadership, although many colleges and universities are charged with developing future leaders to tackle grand societal challenges. The purpose of this study was to examine higher education institutions' contributions to college students' civic engagement and multicultural competence as well as the relationships between these contributions and students' development of an integrative leadership orientation. Using a multi-institutional survey of college seniors (n = 5,922), the results of this study suggest institutional efforts to develop students' multicultural competence and civic engagement are positively associated with undergraduate students' development of an integrative leadership orientation.
