Communication Teacher, v24 n4 p247-257 Oct 2010
Throughout the nation, training students for leadership roles is a primary cross-disciplinary bridge from coursework to career or from service learning to community service. Student leadership training has been linked to communication traits of goal setting, decision making, conflict resolution, concern for community, and increased understanding of diversity. Researchers interviewed student leadership training group representatives across a three-institution consortium and found limited assessment procedures. To illustrate relevance, a content analysis was conducted on three pertinent journals. Assessment offers the communicative ammunition needed to build programs in tough economic times and the necessary knowledge to assist students in becoming strong employee-leaders.
