Identifying Inputs to Leadership Development within an Interdisciplinary Leadership Minor
McKim, Aaron J.; Sorensen, Tyson J.; Velez, Jonathan J.
Journal of Leadership Education, v14 n2 p51-64 Spr 2015
Researchers conducted a qualitative analysis of students' experiences while enrolled in an interdisciplinary leadership minor with the intent to determine programmatic inputs that spur leadership development. Based on students' reflections, three domains of programmatic inputs for leadership development within the minor were identified. These domains include leadership development at the individual level, leadership development at the group level, and leadership development through experiential learning. Themes within these three domains are also identified providing additional insight into the participants' experiences while enrolled in the leadership minor. Based on these findings, researchers proposed a framework for leadership development within an interdisciplinary minor. Recommendations for future research and application of the proposed framework are discussed.
