This book is designed to provide leadership educators with a wealth of classroom and workshop activities, discussion and reflection questions, assignment suggestions, and additional resources such as video clips and supplementary readings.

The Social Change Model of Leadership Development—upon which the book is based—was designed by well-known leadership educators and received wide acclaim and use. The validity of this model has been established through a number of research studies including the Multi-Institutional Study of Leadership.
