We performed an extension study on a previous research article My Fair Lady? Inferring Organizational Trust from the Mere Presence of Women in Leadership Roles and applied it to college students at Longwood University. The research question being examined was whether or not female student leaders are perceived to show more organizational trust than male student leaders. We hypothesized that female student leaders would be more trusted than male student leaders within the organizations of the Student Government Association (SGA) and Fraternity and Sorority Life (FSL).
