The purpose of this study is to investigate how participation in an academic service-learning program at a HBCU affects students’ socially responsible leadership development. The Socially Responsible Leadership Scale (SRLS) was used to measure the 8 Cs, (Consciousness of Self, Congruence, Commitment, Collaboration, Common Purpose, Controversy with Civility, Citizenship, and Change) of the SCM of Leadership Development (Slack, 2006). The study looked at the relationship between the kinds of service-learning experiences students participated in, the amount of time they spent in service-learning, and their gender. The analysis revealed a positive correlation between leadership outcomes and students’ participation in community/ economic development engagement activities, specifically along the values of consciousness of self, collaboration, and change. No correlations were found between leadership outcomes and the amount of time students spent in service-learning or their gender. The findings indicate that HBCU students who participate in a service-learning activity that improves the quality of life and enriches the neighborhood they live and serve in may support socially responsible leadership development.
