S.A.V.E. and Emerging Leaders

If you are not quite ready to run for a position, but want to be involved in SGA, join the Student Activities Volunteer Extraordinaire (S.A.V.E.) program or Emerging Leaders program. S.A.V.E. allows students to participate and volunteer in activities and events sponsored by SGA and the Office of Student Activities. There is no major commitment. Students are interviewed and then contacted to assist with upcoming events. The Emerging Leaders program is designed to groom individuals that are interested in Student Leader positions. Those students will assist with events as well, but will also be offered leadership training and other responsibilities preparing them for leadership roles.
