Outcomes will be measured through a variety of reports, observations, evaluations of individual programs, annual random selection for evaluation opportunity, and evaluation of all participants of the SLP. By participating in the Student Leadership Program, 80% of the students will be able to give a definition of inspirational leadership and four characteristics of what it takes to be a leader and how individual values can be reflected in individual leadership styles, as well as be able to organize and conduct a meeting, develop and draft agendas, and lead others toward a specific goal. The assessment will be measured by the student’s participation in the program and conducting their own club/organization/event meetings.

 

NOTE: Assessment needs will impact program implementation.
