Intramural sports, sports clubs, informal recreation, group exercise, and outdoor adventures have the capacity to bolster students’ development in various ways. In this session, research from the 2015 administration of the Multi-Institutional Study of Leadership will be used to explore how recreation experiences are related to leadership outcomes. Join us as we discuss the findings and consider ways that staff can leverage recreation activities for greater gains in leadership development.
