Multi-Institutional Study of Leadership 2015

In the Fall of 2015, four CUNY institutions, including Lehman College, participated in the Multi Institutional Study of Leadership, an instrument developed by Dr. Susan Komives, Dr. John P. Dugan et al. Nearly 600 Lehman students completed the study. The overall scores for the Lehman cohort on the General Outcomes of the Study indicated that the Lehman students scored significantly higher in all eight scales within the CUNY Coalition and scored significantly higher in five of the eight scales in the MSL National Sample, Carnegie Peers, Master’s Size (10,000-19,000) and Public Institutions.
