Summary:
The objective of this research is to explore the feasibility for an undergraduate Leadership minor to be established at Florida Atlantic University (FAU). Insight will be sought through focus groups and phone interviews to explore what degree of interest there is for a Leadership Studies Program here at FAU and to learn what practices work best at other institutions that have established Leadership Studies programs. We will gain this information by asking students what they believe are three skills and attributes of an effective leader, how the new Introduction to Leadership course (LDR 2010) has assisted students in their leadership pursuits, and what their level of interest is for having a program. We will speak with individuals at institutions to gauge what is working for their Leadership programs. With this data, we seek to showcase the desire (or not) for establishing a Leadership Studies Program at FAU.
