Leadership Attitudes and Beliefs of Incoming First-Year College Students
Fischer, Donald V.; Overland, Maribeth; Adams, Laura
Journal of Leadership Education, v9 n1 p1-16 Win 2010
Due to limited resources available for leadership development programming at colleges and universities, there is a need to better understand the leadership attitudes and beliefs of incoming first-year students in order to most efficiently develop effective leadership. The purpose of this study was to examine the leadership attitudes and beliefs of incoming first-year college students within the context of ecological leadership in order to determine if gender or ethnic differences in the leadership attitudes and beliefs exist. Implications for leadership development programs are discussed.
