You will be “Chancellor for a Day” and participate in all of the activities and meetings scheduled for Chancellor James A. Anderson. The main goals of the program are to: 1.) give students an opportunity to be a part of the administrative process; 2.) emphasize the role of the student in the university; 3.) give students experience in the decision making process; and 4.) enable students to gain some understanding of the leadership skills required for managing a multifaceted organization and the synergy required for operating as a whole.
Applications will initially be reviewed for the Chancellor by the Selection Committee, which is comprised of students, faculty, staff, and representatives from the Student Government Association and the Chancellor’s Office. Notification of acceptance will be sent from the Chancellor’s Office.
