Student leaders play a vital role in shaping the Knox College experience. While our leadership opportunities are diverse, each has the common goal of enhancing campus life, complementing the academic experience, and upholding the College's values of critical thinking, inclusivity, respect
Student Leader Selection is the hiring process for the Student Leader positions. The process consists of a common application and interview process. The rubric that will be used to score Student Leader applications may be viewed by clicking here. Students are required to participate in the group interviews in order to remain a candidate in Student Leader Selection. Listing interest in a specific position on the application does not guarantee a student will be offered an individual interview for that position. Additionally, employers will primarily use a student's application score to determine if they would like to schedule an individual interview with a student for their position. The application, group interview, individual interview, and overall team composition in each position will be considered when making hiring decisions.
We encourage you to attend one of the information sessions to learn more about the process. Below you will find a timeline, job descriptions, and instructions on accessing the application information on Handshake. If you have questions about the process please contact the Coordinator for Residential, Fraternity and Sorority life, Amanda Dermer, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are interested in learning more about becoming a student leader, we encourage you to attend an information session! Information sessions will include additional details about the selection process and provide an opportunity for students to talk to other Student Leaders who currently hold the available positions and their supervisors.
