Presidential Leadership Society seeks student applicants

Published: February 18, 2021 Author: Staff reports

The Presidential Leadership Society is a group of volunteer student-leaders who give their time and talents to advance the priorities and initiatives of the Office of the President and University Advancement. Members of the Society serve as official representatives of Ohio University at various presidential, advancement and alumni events (virtually and in-person when possible) throughout the academic year.

Through high-level training and regular interactions with University leadership, students chosen for this organization will be prepared to serve as hosts for University guests at a variety of public and private functions, to support the mission of the Office of the President. Having proven their leadership abilities through service to other student organizations and involvement in campus and community activities, these loyal Bobcats will be well prepared to represent the best that OHIO has to offer. The University is now looking for students to join the Presidential Leadership Society.

Example Society activities include:

  • Represent the University and the president as official hosts for signature experiences with internal and external constituencies, such as:
    • President’s suites at home football games
    • Regional admissions recruitment events
    • Virtual donor events
    • Homecoming events
    • Lecture series and more!
  • Receive professional development training and hear from guest speakers at group meetings

To learn more about the Society from a current member, attend a come-and-go-style virtual reception.
