This chapter evaluated a university general education subject on leadership and intrapersonal development (“Tomorrow’s Leaders”) offered at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University based on an online survey using the Student Feedback Questionnaire (SFQ). At the end of the first semester of 2013/14 academic year, 725 year-one students completed the online questionnaire. Results showed that the students generally had positive ratings on both the subject attributes and the qualities of teachers. The majority of the participants perceived the subject as beneficial to their holistic development and leadership competencies. Students from Faculty of Health and Social Sciences and Faculty of Applied Science and Textiles had more favorable evaluation of the subject than did students in Faculty of Construction and Environment. Students’ perceived benefit of the subject was significantly predicted by the subject attributes and teacher attributes. Implications of the findings are discussed.
