Application is now open for student leadership positions for 2021-2022
The application for student leadership positions for the 2021-2022 academic year is now open. Students who are applying to be a new orientation leader, international student mentor, resident advisor, FYT peer mentor, peer wellness educator, Student Conduct Hearing Board member, service advocate, Service Plunge fall facilitator and/or Mercy in Motion leader should use the student leadership application.
The application will be available through Friday, January 29, 2021. The student leadership application streamlines the process, making it easier for students to apply for multiple leadership positions. There are supplemental questions required for each position, which populate after students select the positions for which they are applying.
Students who currently hold one or more of the aforementioned positions should reapply through their respective offices rather than using the student leadership application. Questions about re-applications should be directed to individual offices.
Students who are interested in submitting the student leadership application are invited to take advantage of resume assistance offered by the Office of Career Development by setting up a virtual appointment through Handshake to meet with a career advisor.
Due to the ever changing restrictions and developments around COVID-19 guidelines, Salve Regina is unsure at this time if students will be able to hold multiple positions during the 2021 – 2022 academic year. As a result, all students applying for Residential Advisor (RA), FYT Peer Mentor, and Orientation Leader may be affected by these changes; however, students are still encouraged to apply to any and all positions of interest.
Please be aware that all student leadership positions, job descriptions and responsibilities are subject to change and this includes any potential training dates.
