This mixed-methods study examined the leadership efficacy of community college students in leadership positions using Bandura's (1997) self-efficacy concept. The sample included 124 respondents from 19 community colleges in California. The results indicated that student leaders' leadership efficacy was moderately high, suggesting participants believed they might be able to accomplish certain leadership tasks. There were no significant differences in leadership efficacy scores by gender or ethnicity. However, a significant difference was found in one category, the belief in ability to motivate groups. Implications for leadership educators, institutional practices, and future research are discussed.
