The MSL is comprised of over 400 variables, scales, and composite measures representing students’ demographics and pre-college experiences, experiences during college, and key outcome measures. It is adapted from the Socially Responsible Leadership Scale (SRLS; Tyree, 1998), which measures the eight core values of the social change model (HERI, 1996); and the MSL focuses on understanding the influences of higher education in shaping social responsible leadership capacity and other leadership-related outcomes such as complex cognitive skills, leadership efficacy, social change behaviors, seeing alternative social perspectives, spiritual development, racial identity, resiliency, and agency.
