Campus Leadership and Volunteering

Campus leadership opportunities are an important part of the student experience, and provide unique occasions for personal and professional development. Campus leaders can be faculty, staff, students, and alumni, and hold a variety of volunteer positions, including mentors, community moderators, chapter officers, and social media influencers. You can review open campus leader positions and read position descriptions by visiting the Campus Leader webpage.

The Office of Student & Alumni Affairs administers the campus leadership program, and can help interested participants decide on roles, answer questions, and advise on open positions. Specific campus leader roles are administered by various departments in the university, and managed in conjunction with the Office of Student & Alumni Affairs, through a program manager.

To be eligible to be a campus leader as a student, you must be in good academic standing with the university. If your academic status at the university changes while you are serving your term as a campus leader, you may be removed from the position, until you are able to return to good standing.

The success of the campus leader program is dependent on engaged students who want to be part of the co- and extra-curricular experiences at APUS. Participation in a campus leadership role will not result in academic credit or in being paid, but could help connect classroom learning to everyday experiences, and broaden your network of APUS affiliates. Campus leaders demonstrate skill growth in Leadership and Teamwork, Communication Skills, Critical Thinking and Reflection, Administrative and Project Management, Self-Management, and Organizational Knowledge and Strategy competencies.
