Leadership Skills of Undergraduate Students at Hashemite University in Jordan
Undergraduate students recognize the importance of developing various skills during their time in college, including leadership, time management, reading, and public-speaking skills. In Jordanian universities, the Deanship of Student Affairs is responsible for caring for students' well-being on all levels, including physical, mental, social, and psychological. This includes organizing and overseeing social and cultural activities as well as establishing student associations and clubs. A study was conducted to investigate the leadership skills of undergraduate students and examine differences based on their sex, college, and membership in university clubs. The study utilized a descriptive method and the "S-LPI" instrument with five dimensions. 254 participants were selected from a population of all students enrolled in the Hashemite University during the first semester of 2022/2023. The results showed that participants reported moderate levels of leadership skills across all five dimensions. Male students had significantly higher levels of leadership skills related to Enabling Others to Act compared to female students. There were no significant differences in leadership skills across students' colleges. However, members of university associations and clubs had significantly higher levels of leadership skills across all five dimensions than non-members. These findings may be useful for university administrators in designing student clubs and encouraging students to participate in them.
