Perceptions of Student Leadership in the University Context—The Case of the Students’ Union in the University of Sheffield (United Kingdom)
ABSTRACT

The current work presents a descriptive study which focuses on analyzing the self-perceptions of student representatives in order to determine their characteristics and leadership profile, based on their situation and context (Sheffield University’s Student Union, UK). A non-experimental research method was applied, based on the use of questionnaires and semistructured interviews. Some of the results confirm the conditioning exerted by the organizational culture of each institution, as well as the importance of the vocational component with respect to the development and dynamization of the groups.
