Reports on survey of graduates of the Wisconsin Rural Leadership Program that seeks to increase knowledge of public affairs and skills in group problem-solving through enhanced capacities to deal with public issues. The study suggests that rural leadership development and the leader's economic status has a negative effect; the greater the income the less value and satisfaction with the program. The leadership development program appears to mediate between civic and community development participation and economic status. Implications for adult education and civic development discussed.
