The development of student leaders has long been an important goal of the community college movement. Teaching faculty and student development staff offer a range of credit courses, noncredit experiences, and other initiatives designed to prepare students for leadership positions in our respective communities. Unfortunately, research and experience indicate that many leadership programs are conducted in isolation of other programs on campus, often consisting of stand-alone credit courses or one-shot student life activities. This silo approach can be bolstered significantly by engaging a more holistic and learning-centered strategy.
