Student Leadership Opportunities

Belhaven University provides multiple opportunities for traditional undergraduate students to serve their fellow students through leadership.  Students who choose and are selected to lead are able to benefit personally and professionally, develop their interpersonal skills, and build meaningful friendships within the student development division.  They will be mentored by professional staff and have opportunists to guide their peers throughout the academic year.

If you wish to learn more about serving in these roles or how they can benefit you please contact the office of Student Development: sdevelopment@belhaven.edu | 601.968.5969.  For most roles, an application process begins at the start of each Spring semester for the following academic year.
