LEAD Positions Application Information
Thank you for your interest in becoming LEAD Scholars Academy Leadership Team member!
In order to apply for a position, applicants must have a minimum GPA of 3.0 and be in good standing with the program. Applicants must also attend the required retreats and register for the specific courses for Mentors and LSA/LEB which are outlined in the attached Leadership Booklet.
Note: Unfortunately, if you have already been selected as a Resident Assistant (RA) or Orientation Leader (O-Team) for the upcoming Academic Year, RA training and O-Team conflicts with the REEL Retreat and other required engagements. Due to this conflict, you will not be able to hold a Second-Year Leadership position in LEAD.
Students planning to participate in Sorority Recruitment may encounter conflicts with the August retreat dates. Please contact Fraternity and Sorority Life to request information about Sorority Recruitment dates and time.
Students may apply for up to five (5) leadership positions. Be advised that a student cannot serve as a Mentor, LSA Board Member, or LEB Board Member at the same time. However, a student can apply to be a REEL Counselor and also serve as a Mentor, LSA Director or LEB Director at the same time.
The application requires students to rank their position preferences in order and answer the required essay questions for each position. Also, students must submit a resume and a statement listing any other positions they will hold or are applying to for the upcoming school year.
Upon completion, students who applied for a REEL Counselor or Mentor position have to sign up for a group interview in the LEAD Scholars office. Students who applied for a position on LSA or LEB will be contacted by current board members to set up an interview.
LSA Director applicants must also obtain 100 signatures of current first or second year LEAD Scholars students. Blank signature packets can be picked up at the front desk of the LEAD Scholars office. All current LSA Board of Directors members and committee chairs are not eligible for signatures.
Please see the Leadership Booklet to review position descriptions, requirements, responsibilities, and important dates to remember.
