Abstract

Leadership beliefs contribute to behaviors and attitudes. The purposes for conducting this study were 1) to gain an understanding of undergraduate students’ leadership beliefs, 2) to implement three distinct leadership modules into an introductory textiles and clothing course, and 3) to assess the modules’ effectiveness in promoting empowering leadership beliefs. The study used quantitative and qualitative methods (n=76). Findings suggest undergraduates’ perceptions of leadership encompass trait and situational perspectives of leadership. The modules influenced students’ understanding of the varied definitions of leadership and empowered them to consider that the behaviors, beliefs, and attitudes of leadership were attainable.
