McElravy, L. J.; Matkin, Gina; Hastings, Lindsay J.
Journal of Leadership Education, v17 n1 p35-55 Jan 2018

To better understand the influence of service-learning on student development, an exploration of a leadership service-learning course and an important workplace attribute, Positive Psychological Capital, are theoretically explored.
