The main purpose of this research was to gain an understanding of a framework for student leadership competencies development. This research used a qualitative method. This study involved triangulation as a result of combining in-depth individual interviews, focus group interviews, review of documentation, and informal discussions with participants throughout the research process. The findings show there are several factors affecting student leadership competencies development such as 1) individual factors including emotional intelligence, self-efficacy, self-confidence, and extroversion, 2) student experiences and involvement including academic involvement, student-faculty relationship, peer relationship, leadership position in class and in student organization, and 3) college environment. The results of this study provide practitioners such as student affairs staff, faculty, administrators, and boards of trustees with information on how to best prepare future leaders for effective leadership in 21 century. © 2011 Published by Elsevier Ltd.
