Abstract

Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has approximately 200 student-led organizations. Unfortunately, many new student leaders require a relatively large adjustment period to lead effectively; therefore, hindering progress. To help combat this problem, we researched several variables in relation to organizational success, defined as membership engagement. By collecting data from the WPI population through surveys, interviews, and focus groups, and utilizing statistical and content analysis, we have provided recommendations for student leaders to facilitate development and greater organizational success.
