University Student Leadership Cabinet

The University Student Leadership Cabinet is a diverse group of student leaders from all avenues of campus life. 

Student members are nominated by university faculty, staff and administrators for an application and selection process. Membership is determined in September each fall, and meetings follow every three weeks during the academic year.  The group is facilitated by the Vice President of Student Affairs and Assistant to the Vice President.

Members select discussion topics and focus on important campus issues. Each area has a small group of students who work together to identify changes and/or improvements that may need to be made. The issues selected for 2018-2019 include:

  • Campus Safety
  • Diversity & Inclusion
  • Mental Health
  • Sexual Misconduct
  • Student Engagement/Campus Involvement
  • Underutilization of Campus Resources

Students also have the opportunity to hear from key campus leaders such as President F. King Alexander.
