The Effects of an Introductory Leadership Course on Socially Responsible Leadership, Examined by Age and Gender
Buschlen, Erin; Johnson, Matthew
Journal of Leadership Education, v13 n1 p31-45 Win 2014
The purpose of this paper is to examine the impact of age and gender on student leadership capacity during a 16-week, for-credit academic leadership course at a regional mid-western university. The course promoted the tenets of the Social Change Model of Leadership (SCM) through theoretical and application-based projects. Participants completed the Socially Responsible Leadership Scale (SRLS) as a pre/post test. The findings suggest age does not mediate students' capacities for socially responsible leadership, but gender does for the SCM domains of collaboration and citizenship.
