Student Leader Application

Student Leadership Application Process

The Student Leadership Application is an online application process for several leadership positions on campus including Community Facilitators (CFs) and Neighborhood Representatives (NRs). Students complete one general student leadership application that allows them to apply for both positions at one time.

The application for the CF & NR selection processes will be available beginning on Monday, March 7, 2022 at 5:00PM and is due on Monday, March 28, 2022 by 5:00PM.

For questions regarding Community Facilitator (CF) or Neighborhood Representative (NR) positions or the selection process, please contact residencelife@scu.edu.

Community Facilitators (CFs) are peer leaders who serve as student members of teams in Residential Learning Communities (RLC). The CF position has been designed to support the University Strategic Plan and the Jesuit philosophy for integrated education. CFs contribute to the development of a community of scholars by assisting the academic and personal development of residents and by promoting and supporting an inclusive environment in which differences are thoughtfully explored. Additionally, CFs are expected to know and uphold University policies, procedures, and community standards, work collaboratively to build community, be available to mentor students, and encourage responsible citizenship on and off the SCU campus.

Neighborhood Representatives (NRs) are peer leaders who serve as student members of teams in Junior and Senior residential communities (University Villas and Nobili Hall). NRs contribute to the development of a community of scholars by assisting the academic and personal development of residents and by promoting and supporting an inclusive environment in which differences are thoughtfully explored. Additionally, NRs are expected to know and uphold University policies, procedures, and community standards, work collaboratively to build community and encourage responsible citizenship on and off the SCU campus.
