The Presidential Leadership Society is looking for student candidates

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

Through high-level training and regular interactions with University management, students chosen for this organization will be ready to host University guests at various public and private functions, in order to support the mission of the president’s office. Having proven their leadership abilities by serving other student organizations and getting involved 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 seeking students to join the Presidential Leadership Society.

Examples of the company’s activities:

  • Represent the University and the President as official hosts for signing experiences with internal and external constituencies, such as:
    • Presidential suites at home football matches
    • Regional Admissions Recruitment Events
    • Virtual donor events
    • Return home events
    • Lecture series and more!
  • Receive professional development training and listen to guest speakers at group meetings
