However, accomplishing and measuring such growth in students is often questionable. This article describes Northern Michigan University's Student Leader Fellowship Program, discusses development and implementation of the program, identifies several of the program's learning objectives, presents quantitative and qualitative outcomes assessment data demonstrating the program's impact on students, and discusses factors key to the twenty plus years of program success.
