Jasso, Sonia Lizette
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, Our Lady of the Lake University
Student success has been predicted conservatively, using academic, demographic, and economic variables. Since many colleges are feeling the pressure to produce more graduates, student success is at the forefront of all universities. This study looks to find a relationship between traditional and non-traditional variables. The objective of the study is to survey the students' in the study institution to examine whether authentic leadership, as measured by the Authentic Leadership Questionnaire (ALQ), and emotional intelligence, as measured by the Schutte Self-Report Emotional Intelligence Test (SSEIT) predict students' success. Finding a relationship between student leadership behaviors could help with the appropriation of student resources. An aspect of this study is to look at the students' characteristics that might affect their progression. Student characteristics are variables, which, many times, cannot be changed. Nevertheless, institutions must determine which students might need more assistance. Additional support can be achieved through advising, tutoring, or mentoring. This study addresses the gap in the leadership literature, by examining student success in authentic leadership and emotional intelligence outcomes. Findings from the analysis revealed that there is no difference in authentic leadership, emotional intelligence and student success but faculty alerts and midterm grades had a significant effect on all three student success factors. Nonetheless, all four emotional intelligence components had a significant effect on the total authentic leadership. Lastly, all four authentic leadership components correlated with three out of the four emotional intelligence components. Implications for policy and practice are hereby discussed. The study outcomes may benefit college administrators and faculty by providing some insight into student success.
