Leon, Bianca R.
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, California State University, Long Beach
The purpose of this study is to examine a community college district Grow Your Own (GYO) leadership program in the Western United States, the Multi College Leadership Development Institute (MCLDI). The MCLDI was developed in-house for a multi-campus community college district and offered to interested employees at all position levels with the intent to provide them the opportunity to develop and enhance their leadership skills and abilities. While most leadership development literature has focused on the presidential role or other senior level positions, the aim of MCLDI is to support leadership development in general; not just for senior level positions, but for mid-level management and academic position leadership as well. This study gathered the perspectives of all those involved, from the leaders who created the program and their experience in doing so, to the program participants and graduates. Providing the different perspectives allows for other campuses to draw from the benefits and challenges that are shared in creating their own program or for comparison to programs that already exist. A qualitative case study approach was utilized to investigate MCLDI and its development, implementation, and the benefits and challenges experienced by the coordinators and participants. Three themes were identified from analyzing across data sources. Building organizational capacity, developing human capital, and program structure emerged throughout the data collected from interviews, observations, and document analysis and were reflected in the findings for each of the research questions.
