Student Leadership Team

The Student Leadership Team (SLT) is comprised of a dynamic group of students who serve as facilitators, trainers, peer educators and mentors to incoming students during and after the New Student Fall Retreat. The SLT take part in a ten-week intense diversity training during the spring term prior to fall retreat. During this time, student leaders learn about their identity and leadership development, fostering difficult conversations,  and leading incoming students in the fall. They also have a direct role in planning the New Student Fall Retreat. If you are interested in joining the Student Leadership Team or have questions, email:
