FACULTY/STAFFSTUDENT ENGAGEMENT TRANSCRIPT (SET) > LEADERSHIP
Leadership

Category Description

The goal of this category is to encourage students to take action and influence others to make a positive difference for the university and the community at large. A student leader is one that holds the position of head, or related complementary positions such as cabinet member, officer or official, of a University recognized group, organization or activity. The leadership position requires him/her to plan and organize tasks, events and functions individually or with the assistance of his/her peers. Evidence of a student holding a leadership position shall consist of documentation from the organization outlining the leader's successful election or appointment to the leadership position and the term of the position.

Examples and Criteria

Activities that satisfy this category include leadership positions within university-sanctioned organizations. Examples include but are not limited to:
  • Officers and cabinet members of student organizations (like clubs and honor societies)
  • Captains or leaders of athletic teams
  • Members of student government
  • Student mentors
  • Community Advisors
  • RMU Ambassadors

  • Editors of newspaper or magazine
  • Officers of Greek organizations
  • Student representatives to university committees and councils
