Western Peer Leaders Program is Recruiting!
Student Experience recruits hundreds of student leaders each year and we have several leadership positions that are OPEN until April 13! These student leaders are referred to as “Western Peer Leaders” and are current students (undergraduate or graduate) who volunteer or work for the areas within the Student Experience portfolio.
Keep checking Western Connect because we have leadership positions and programs continuing to happen in online spaces.
Remember to add these to your record so you can tell the story of all your involvements, even while you're away from campus!
