Abstract : Leadership development may be considered a major goal of higher education that contributes to the development of students' social and life skills (Chambers, 1992). The existing literature on student development suggests that leadership programming has made a positive impact on both male and female college students (Chambers, 1992; Cooper, Healy & Simpson, 1994). Leadership programming has been related to increased persistence (Astin, 1985), satisfaction, retention and graduation (Kuh, Schuh & Whitt, 1991). The existing literature on college leadership development identifies college freshmen as the appropriate target group for leadership programming (Upcraft & Gardner, 1989). There is a significant amount of evidence that student success is largely determined by experiences during the freshman year (Noel, Levitz & Saluri, 1985 as cited in Upcraft & Gardner, 1989). In my paper, I have developed an eight week leadership development program, geared towards college freshmen, titled Tomorrow's Leaders Today (TLT).
