Through interviews, surveys, and focus groups this report examines student leadership at Dartmouth College. From the research I identify three main trends for discussion--the differences in characteristics and leadership styles between genders, the causes and practice of authoritarian leadership, and the issue of trust in organizations. Through these trends and general survey results, this study examines several aspects of leadership on campus and provides a foundation for future leadership studies.
