New Research on Leadership Programs

Read this second report based on ILA's Leadership Education Program directory and the work of the Florida State University Leadership Learning Research Center. After the distribution of the first report last year, the research team decided to continue examining the descriptive data to "better understand how academic leadership programs compared by various degree types." The primary purpose of this second report is to "further analyze academic leadership programs by degree types to see if any themes emerge regarding the types of academic leadership programs offered in the United States."
