LIFE: Leadership is for Everyone

Dear Simmons Community Member,

The Leadership is for Everyone Process for Spring 2014 is now accepting nominations for student leader positions on campus.

If you know of a Simmons student who would be a great candidate for the positions listed below, we want them to apply! If you are a Simmons student and would like to nominate yourself, we encourage you to do so! We plan on contacting nominated students to inform them that someone thinks they would be great in a leadership position. We will use a direct quote from the paragraph you write below. Simmons students do not need to be nominated to apply to these positions, however, we will be keeping nominated students up to date with the most current announcements.
