Student Leadership

The Student Leadership Team (SLT) is comprised of the Student Council, Chapel Team Leaders, Ministry Team Leaders, and Resident Advisors. The team has been given the responsibility of partnering with staff, faculty, and the board in the fulfillment of the mission of the College. 

Early in the winter semester, students are invited to apply for positions on the Student Leadership Team.

The process is different for each of the positions available.  Information is made available with applications on requirements and process.
