Student leaders are given large amounts of power to wield with little and usually no training on leadership. Once the ego enters the authoritarian leader comes into play. Statement likem "you were late to the meeting, so now we are cutting your budget!" Punitive actions.
These students leaders and student organizations would benefit from more training and development to learn communication processes and begin to understand a team philosophy of leadership and not a title of power.
One major concern that many profesors and student advisors see is that many students are over extended, many have two majors-3 to 4 minors- and serve on 4-6 student organizations.
Student advisors and college staff could help these students to close their focus and instead of "Building their resume" they should focus on making the organizations and majors be impacted positely by their presence.
