Abstract:

Leadership development may be considered a major goal of higher education that contributes to the development of students social and life skills Chambers, 1992. The existing literature on student development suggests that leadership programming has made a positive impact on both male and female college students Chambers, 1992 Cooper, Healy Simpson, 1994. Leadership programming has been related to increased persistence Astin, 1985, satisfaction, retention and graduation Kuh, Schuh Whitt, 1991. The existing literature on college leadership development identifies college freshmen as the appropriate target group for leadership programming Upcraft Gardner, 1989. There is a significant amount of evidence that student success is largely determined by experiences during the freshman year Noel, Levitz Saluri, 1985 as cited in Upcraft Gardner, 1989. In my paper, I have developed an eight week leadership development program, geared towards college freshmen, titled Tomorrows Leaders Today TLT.
