What People Are Saying

From the Publisher
“…the collaborating editors and authors capture a vast array of information that can be read as background when designing or revising student leadership programs. They suggest to leadership educators a compelling need to model the purposefulness, authenticity, and empowerment values that undergird and characterize leadership theory in the design and delivery of programs. Additionally, this is best accomplished by attending to the literature and using it as a means to reflect on, reconsider, and evolve ongoing practice. Adopting a stance of inquiry, flexibility, creativity, and innovation not only improves programs, but also models leadership. After studying this book, individual leadership educators and campus teams can build an agenda to advance the leadership education options at their institutions, support the evolution of leadership education nationally and globally, and enrich their own capacities as leadership educators. I recommend this book to our colleagues in student affairs who will find the text useful whether they are beginning a new program, redesigning a targeted program or enhancing a program for new leadership educators as well as seasoned ones and advisers who have connections with peer mentor and orientation leader programs and campus organizations.”—NACADA Journal

    He snapped back into action. He snapped his string back on his bow, releasing an arrow. As soon as it touched the demon, it exploded into celestial bronze shrapnel.

    He kneels next to Jenna and places his ear against her chest. He hears the pulse and nods to Syren, flashing a thumbs up.

    [ She's right. We could use some more monster attacks. ]
    She nodded and put a hand to her throbbing head, wincing inwardly. She shakily sheathed her sword and walked back to res 3.
