The Role of Faculty Advisors in the Success of Psi Chi Chapters: Leadership Characteristics and Their Relation With Student Organization Success
Date of Award
Leaders of a student organization may have a strong impact on the success of the chapter they lead. The current research study examined leadership qualities of Psi Chi Faculty Advisors, leaders in a Psychology honors society, and how those qualities affected the activity, involvement, and satisfaction of members within Psi Chi. In order to assess these variables, a national online survey was sent out to Psi Chi student leaders asking them to evaluate their Faculty Advisor's leadership characteristics in addition to their Psi Chi chapter. Two-hundred and eighty-five surveys were completed and returned. Results showed a significant positive correlation between Psi Chi Faculty Advisor leadership scores and student satisfaction (r=.436, p< .01). Results also show a significant positive correlation between Faculty Advisor leadership scores and chapter activity (r=.190, p<.01).
