Abstract or Summary
  • The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between college student organization leadership experience and postcollege leadership activity. A questionnaire was employed to gather data to determine Ii there were differences by gender, academic major, and last year of attendance at OSU among former student leaders In: postcollegiate leadership activity, motivation for participation, perception of leadership skills learned, leadership skills to be emphasized, and perception of the value of the collegiate leadership experience. The content and structure of the questionnaire were developed through a study of related literature and research which provided data and formats from similar surveys. One-way analysis of variance and chi-square tests were used to determine whether there were differences among the respondents based on enrollment In a particular academic college. Questions about membership and leadership In college student organizations, membership and leadership roles In post-college organizations, and contribution to and emphasis on skill development were analyzed using the ANOVA. Questions about motivation for participating in college student and post-college organizations were tested using repeated measures ANOVAs with the Newinan-Keuls Multiple range test, with simultaneous adjustment for gender, academic college and last year of attendance. Post-college leadership scores were compared with the last year of attendance using a Pearson product-moment correlation. A multiple regression was performed to test post-college leadership activity against selected collegiate variables. Questions regarding involvement in college student organizations, leadership skill development, and political activity were analyzed using chi-square. The last year of attendance for each respondent was measured in frequency distributions and plotted for each question. Correlation analysis was conducted with last year of attendance and post-college leadership activity. Based on the results of the study, the factors that have the greatest influence on post-college leadership activities were the number of college leadership activities, the involvement level, and the level of degree attained. No significant differences existed between men and women or among academic colleges with regard to the frequency of postcollege activities. This study provided evidence that there is a relationship between college student organization leadership experience and post-college leadership activity.
