March 2011, Jossey-Bass
Praise for the Second Edition of The Handbook for Student Leadership Development
"This is a must-have book for leadership educators and all student affairs professionals who want to develop impactful leadership programs and the leadership capacity of students. Buy it. Read it. Use it to develop the needed leadership for our collective future."
CYNTHIA CHERREY, vice president for campus life, Princeton University, and president, the International Leadership Association
"As we continue to encourage leadership behavior in young people, it is very easy to get lost in a forest of new theories, programs, and definitions. This handbook serves as the compass to guide us, and it grounds the field of student leadership development in principles and best practices. Our challenge is to put this work into action."
PAUL PYRZ, president, LeaderShape
" Comprehensive in design and scope, the second edition of The Handbook is a theory and practice resource manual for every leadership educatorinside and outside of the classroom."
LAURA OSTEEN, director, the Center for Leadership and Civic Education, Florida State University
" Every college administrator responsible for coordinating student leadership programming should have this book. The Handbook for Student Leadership Development takes the guesswork out of leadership program design, content, and delivery."
AINSLEY CARRY, vice president for student affairs, Auburn University
" I recommend without hesitation the Handbook for Student Leadership Development to student affairs professionals who desire to enhance the leadership experiences for all their students as well as teachers who are seeking ways to bolster their students' classroom experiences."
Dr. WILLIAM SMEDICK, director, Leadership Programs and Assessment, Office of the Dean of Student Life, and lecturer, Center for Leadership Education, Johns Hopkins University
