Leadership in Intramural Sports & Club Sports: Examining Influences to Enhance Educational Impact
Since its launch in 2006, the Multi-Institutional Study of Leadership (MSL) has continuously evolved to advance the understanding of how higher education can best contribute to college students’ leadership development. This includes the measurement of a wide-array of educational outcomes associated with leadership (e.g., complex cognitive reasoning, resilience, identity) as well as the educational experiences that influence them (e.g., mentoring, involvement in student organizations, research with faculty).
This publication represents an exciting partnership with NIRSA to “drill down” into existing MSL data and examine more closely themes related to leadership development among college students participating in club sports and intramural sports. The themes that emerge are explored both in this publication as well as an academic research article that will be submitted to the Recreational Sports Journal. This work was generously funded by the NIRSA Foundation for which we are incredibly grateful.
