Leadership Fair Brings Opportunities Together

Stonebridge RA staff with their Resident Director and the Director of Residence Life.

There are a lot of ways for Miami students to get involved as a leader on campus. The number of leadership opportunities is one of the reasons Miami stands out for the undergraduate experience. 

But it can be a bit overwhelming for students to navigate. Application deadlines, varying requirements, and information about each opportunity are scattered across the Miami website and various social media accounts. How do students even learn about all their options, let alone keep them all straight?

The Division of Student Life has an answer. For the second year, Student Life will host a student leadership recruitment fair, bringing together multiple leadership opportunities with similar recruitment and selection timelines from across campus.
