dc.description.abstractThis thesis explored the pre-college and college factors that contribute to the outcome of leadership efficacy for college students with a learning disability, an area with little prior research. Data from 717 undergraduate students who identified a learning disability on the Multi-Institutional Study of Leadership were used for this study. Five hypotheses were tested using the Input-Environment-Outcome model as an organizing framework and multiple regression as the statistical method. The study's model explained 47.2% of the observed variance in leadership efficacy with both campus climate and the pre-test for leadership efficacy serving as positive predictors. Negative predictors of the model included students who were Asian/Asian American as well as students who were employed off campus. Several other independent variables had moderate predictive ability, and seven out of eleven blocks in the model explained a significant proportion of the variance. This study's findings offer suggestions for practitioners and researchers.en_US
