Summary
Purpose. The purpose of this study was to assess the characteristics, experiences, and participation in organizations and activities which were related to the perceived leadership abilities of students enrolled in the University of Missouri-Columbia, College of Agriculture. Procedures. The population included all junior and senior students enrolled in the College of Agriculture during the winter semester of 1991 (N = 856). Instruments were mailed to a random sample of 428 students. Statistical tests were conducted at the.05 alpha level. Findings. Respondents rated 27 (56%) statements 5.00 or higher and 19 (40%) statements between 4.00 and 4.99 on a six point agreement scale. Only 2 (4%) statements received mean ratings of 4.00 or lower. Conclusions. Based on the findings of this study, the following were formulated. (1) College of Agriculture students who are older, female, raised on farms, or participate in a foreign language club have better interpersonal relations skills. (2) College of Agriculture students who work more hours per week or participate in the National Honor Society, student council, or livestock associations have better administration skills. (3) Communication skills of College of Agriculture students are related to participation in student organizations and activities. (4) Although nine variables accounted for a statistically significant amount of the variance associated with students' leadership abilities, the amount of variance accounted for was judged to be of little practical significance
