Abstract:We examined the effect of occupying a high school position of leadership on collegiate involvement. Our goal was to better understand the extent to which possessing a position of leadership in high school affected the number of hours students spend in student college organizations, the number of organizations students participated in college, and the number of semesters for which students are involved in college. The study investigated members of registered student organizations (n=758) during the Fall 2016 semester. Within this single-campus study, findings suggest the vast majority of student active in collegiate organizations occupied a position of leadership while in high school and has a significant effect in determining collegiate involvement. Occupying leadership positions in high school were predictive of collegiate involvement only in the number of organizations students participated in college and number of semesters for which students were involved.
