    Program Description

    This webinar draws on six years of research from the Multi-Institutional Study of Leadership (MSL) to answer the question: What matters in the design and delivery of leadership development programs? The MSL is an international research program examining the influences of higher education on college student leadership development. To date more than 250 colleges and universities in five countries have participated in the study generating a dataset of more than 300,000 college students. The webinar will identify high-impact practices with strong influences on leadership capacity and efficacy, how the relative impact of these practices vary by race and gender, and ways in which educators can developmentally sequence interventions to maximize their effectiveness.

John’s research interests focus on the influences of higher education in shaping college students’ involvement and leadership development with a specific emphasis on marginalized voices and ideas.
