Student leadership programs exist in many contexts and encompass many different designs in institutions of higher education. This chapter examines what is known about the historical and current contexts, delivery modes, program audience and access, models, frameworks, and theoretical foci, structure and infrastructure, resources, and outcome and assessment practices, that contribute to the design and impact of student leadership programs. Gaps in the scholarship are identified, and a new agenda for research is proposed that emphasizes program integration and institutionalization, identity and social justice, and an increase in the rigor of research methods employed.
