Longitudinal Comparison of Orientation Leader Learning Outcomes
Orientation leaders (OLs) play a vital role on college and university campuses. They are primarily responsible for transitioning new students into institutions, yet little is known about the learning and development outcomes of the experience. This study compares longitudinal data from 10 years of orientation leader cohorts measuring their pre-, mid-, and post-learning across a set of seven institutionally endorsed student development outcomes (SDOs). Findings indicate growth across all of the seven SDOs within each year but not from year to year. It makes a case that the orientation leader experience has a significant impact on student leader development.
