The Role of Civic Engagement in Undergraduate Leadership Courses
Johnson, Matthew; Woodard, Justin
Journal of Leadership Education, v13 n1 p1-13 Win 2014
Undergraduate leadership courses are becoming increasingly important venues to promote civic engagement. Despite their prominence, the nature of civic engagement in leadership courses has not been examined systematically. This study examined 77 introductory undergraduate leadership courses and the role of civic engagement in these courses. Results indicate that civic engagement components are not widely utilized, and when they are part of the curricula, their implementation and design vary. Recommendations for improving undergraduate leadership curricula are offered.
