Upcoming student leadership and RA application deadlines, informational meetings
The deadline to apply for student leadership positions is Friday, Jan. 31. Students who are applying to be a new FYT peer mentor, international student mentor, peer wellness educators, Mercy in Motion leader, Orientation leader, student conduct hearing board members, resident advisor, service advocate and/or Service Plunge fall facilitator for the 2020-2021 academic year should use the student leadership application.
The student leadership application allows students to apply for multiple positions. There are supplemental questions required for each position, which populate after students select the position(s) 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.
