Student Leadership Opportunities

Who Are Student Leaders?

Otis College Student Leaders serve as role models, mentors, and foster an environment that supports the academic and personal development of all Otis College students. Holding a student leadership position on campus is a valuable opportunity for students to develop skills that will benefit them both personally and professionally. Student Leaders, regardless of position, gain knowledge on a deeper level about the College and have access to professional development opportunities to learn new skills for your future career.

For the 2024-2025 Academic Year, the Offices of Student Engagement and Leadership, Residence Life and Housing, and Admissions will be selecting students to fulfill these roles to support our fellow Owls during their college experience.

Applications will go live in Spring 2024.
