Leadership Opportunities

Each year, over 25% of the student body holds a formal leadership position at the College.

The College encourages students who wish to serve as leaders by providing a range of student leadership trainings and on-campus conferences each semester. In addition, each leadership position carries a training program that is specific to role. The College utilized Student Development and Leadership theory to develop enthusiasm for the student’s experience, produce positive impacts throughout the campus, and carry skills forward throughout their lives.

Campus Leadership Roles

  • The Campus Activities Board (CAB) is made up for students who coordinate, plan, and execute campus events and off-campus trips that expand the College experience outside of the classroom. CAB consists of an elected executive board and members at large. CAB is responsible for determining the needs and wants of students in the areas of recreation, social entertainment, and major events.

  • Campus Ambassadors are students selected to represent the come in a number of ways, including giving campus tours, speaking on student panels, and calling prospective students. They must be dependable, successful, well-spoken students who understand the overarching mission of Landmark College.

  • The New Student Orientation (NSO) Leaders are a team of current Landmark College students that is responsible for the successful integration and adaptation of new students as members of the Landmark College educational community. Orientation Leaders (OLs) undergo an extensive training period in weeks prior to the Orientation program, and have been selected to the positions for their demonstrated knowledge of the College, its core values and campus resources.

  • Like the traditional NSO leaders, these students have been selected to help integrate students into the Landmark College community. The Early Orientation Leaders have been selected to work with and serve the students who attend the Early Orientation for Students with ASD. This program provides a greater acclimation phase to campus living, the establishment of safe spaces and campus allies, and additional support for the social transitions associated with starting College.

  • These are experienced students who are charged with assisting students (typically with social pragmatic difficulties) in navigation and practicing the social dynamics of College life after the New Student Orientation program is complete. Peer mentors are also used for programming and activities that allow them to promote and practice social literacy in students.

  • Resident Assistants (RAs) are students who have chosen to take a leadership position in the residential community. RAs live in the residence halls, assisting the RDs and organizing up to 10 events per semester and proving building supervision on nights and weekends. They are a great resource for students with questions about life on campus, as well as being a resource on policies and procedures. They are responsible for fostering a cooperative and considerate educational community environment that contributes to the academic and personal growth and success of each resident.
