Servant leadership from the student officer perspective in Phi Theta Kappa
by Merideth, Susan C., Ph.D., Capella University, 2007, 113; 3258759
Abstract (Summary)

Phi Theta Kappa is the international honor society of the associate degree granting colleges. There are over 1100 chapters worldwide, consisting of approximately 200,000 active members at any given time. The mission of Phi Theta Kappa is to recognize and encourage scholarship among two-year college students by providing leadership and service opportunities. Phi Theta Kappa is like many academic honor societies, in that the ongoing leadership is widely provided by volunteers. Within Society publications, the concept of servant-leadership is stressed, yet very little is known about the level of servant-leadership found within the organization. Utilizing the Organizational Leadership Assessment Inventory, developed by Dr. James Laub, servant-leadership behaviors will be assessed by the student officer population of the Society.
