Praise for The Student Leadership Challenge

"Why wait to learn leadership in the workplace? Now college students can learn how to lead by using Kouzes and Posner's five proven leadership practices. With examples from the experience of student leaders, The Student Leadership Challenge is the perfect guide for faculty and student affairs staff members as well as for students seeking to develop themselves for leadership."

—Howard T. Prince II, director, Center for Ethical Leadership, LBJ School of Public Affairs, University of Texas at Austin

"I've been teaching leadership classes for twenty years, and The Five Practices are, hands down, the best tool for helping students see both their inherent strengths as leaders as well as to further develop their skills."

—Britt Andreatta, assistant dean of students, First-Year Programs & Leadership Education, University of California, Santa Barbara

"The student examples inspire the reader and show us that running into bumps along the way is not only normal, but that you can approach the challenges with confidence and practical solutions."

—Amanda Crowell Itliong, director of leadership programs, Haas Center for Public Service, Stanford University

"This book is a gift to university educators who teach leadership courses or develop trainings, workshops, and retreats."

—Laura Osteen, co-director, Center for Leadership and Civic Education, Florida State University
