Abstract

The purpose of this study was to determine the impact of Leadership Rowan on student participants in regards to development of self-authorship. The study examined students who have been involved with Leadership Rowan for at least one year to determine the impact of the program on the student's personal development of self-authorship. A survey was distributed on campus to students who were involved with Leadership Rowan for at least one year at the time of the study. Both quantitative and qualitative data were collected, and content analysis was used to identify themes in the data. Results of the data revealed that students involved with Leadership Rowan showed development of self-authorship through their experience with the program.
