From the Publisher“The essays collected here address the idea of leadership education through civic engagement and describe some of the best leadership education programs around the country at the college and university level. They demonstrate that a new definition of leadership is not only a set of programs; it is an ethos that should extend across disciplines and departments.”—Book News Inc.
“In this collection of innovative and diverse essays, From Command to Community: A New Approach to Leadership Education in Colleges and Universities editors Nicholas V. Longo and Cynthia M. Gibson present a new definition of leadership education—one that moves away from the top-down notion of leadership and considers young people as leaders in the communities where they volunteer, work, and are educated.”—National Conference on Citizenship
“This book is well-suited for academics, researchers, educational policy experts, practitioners, and others interested in better framing the context in which student leadership develops as part of the college and university learning experience. Teachers, activists, and community development professionals will also find it helpful when developing and implementing civic engagement activities that link university curriculum to applied community-based activities. In addition, the book would work well as a primary or secondary text in university graduate and undergraduate leadership courses, to help students understand how applied civic engagement activities can facilitate student leadership development, and how they can shape broader organizational and community development activities.”—Journal of Higher Education Outreach & Engagement
