The Honors Program Student Leadership Team is comprised of enthusiastic students who are dedicated to pursuing an "Honors Mindset" and actively engaging in the Honors community. During the fall semester, leadership groups are organized around specific roles and responsibilities, including: Mentoring, Programming, and Recruitment. These groups work collaboratively in dynamic and innovative ways to establish and nurture an inviting culture within the Honors Program.
During the spring semester, the Honors Program Student Leadership Team is typically smaller in size and members fulfill a variety of roles and responsibilities. As space allows, an application window may be opened for new leaders between the fall and spring semesters.
Students selected for the Honors Program Student Leadership Team are employees of Illinois State University and are financially compensated. Additional benefits of fulfilling a position on the Honors Program Student Leadership Team include:
“I think the biggest thing Honors has done for me is giving me confidence in myself. It gave me a chance to build that confidence in my abilities and choices. Honors gave me a voice and a chance to do something bigger than myself for the good of my community.”
