Leadership Research participation opportunity

students participating in leadership

The Office of Leadership Development at Temple University is looking for first-year, first-semester freshmen to participate in a research study coordinated by faculty and staff in the Department of Psychology at Montclair State University.

The study is called Leadership Development while in College and will be a longitudinal study, which means we are interested in studying your development as a leader from now, through your senior year, and even what paths you choose after you graduate from here. This study will help us improve leadership development opportunities here at Temple University.


As a participant, you will be asked to fill out surveys/questionnaires at five different times in the study. In a few days, I will send you a link to a survey. After this, we will contact you next in your sophomore, junior and senior years. The last time we will contact you is one year after your graduation from Temple University.

There are no major risks for taking part in this study; however, each session may be time consuming. Although each of the five sessions varies in time, it may take 30-60 minutes depending on the session. The first session is the longest and may take an hour to complete and the subsequent sessions may take up to 30 minutes.

You may use up to three weeks to complete the first session. Any information you provide during the study will be completely confidential. The faculty and staff at Temple University will not be aware of your participation and your grades will not be affected based on your decision to participate or not participate. As soon as we collect the information we need, we will hide your identity and make you anonymous.
