STUDENT LEADERSHIP INSTITUTES
2011

OVERVIEW

The Social Change Model approaches leadership as a purposeful, collaborative, values-based process that results in positive social change. The Model was built upon the following assumptions:

• Leadership is socially responsible, it impacts change on behalf of others • Leadership is inclusive and accessible to all people.
• Leadership is collaborative. • Leadership is values-based.
• Leadership is a process, not a position.

• Community involvement/service is a powerful vehicle for leadership.

The Model is sometimes called the 7Cs for Change because it espouses seven values of leadership that occur on three dimensions with the goal of positive social change.

The individual dimension consists of the values: consciousness of self, congruence, and commitment. The group dimensions consist of the values: common purpose, collaboration, and controversy with civility. Finally, the societal/community dimension consists of the value of citizenship. All of the values contribute to the ultimate goal of CHANGE.
