Abstract:This research looks at the relationship between registered student organization involvement and progress made on leadership-related goals. We surveyed 908 students following their participation in a week-long leadership development program on both their student organization involvement as well as their self-reported progress made on the leadership-related goals they created while involved in the program. We found that level of involvement (e.g. number of hours spent) in student organizations was not significantly correlated with students’ progress toward their goals. However, student organization involvement (e.g. number of registered student organizations) emerged as a small, but statistically significant, effect on students’ progress on their goals. Although statistically small, we can still conclude that student involvement is a component in moving students from “thinking about” to “making progress” on their leadership-related goals. Further research should look at which types of student organizations lead to the greatest impact on student goal progress and whether being involved in too many organizations can have a negative effect on student leadership development.
