Leadership Opportunities

Serve on one of our three paid leadership development teams:

Student Government Association (SGA)

SGA members advocate for student needs to the faculty and administration, inform the student body about events and issues, and foster the next group of leaders on campus.

Residence Life (RA)

RA’s seek to create a sense of belonging within campus living spaces through intentional conversations, active listening, and thoughtful programming for our diverse residents.

Commuter Assistant (CA)

Commuter Assistants focus their efforts on connecting our commuter students to MU life and resources through effective communication, survey research, and delivering high-quality commuter focused events inside and out of the campus commuter lounge called the Den.

Student Government Student on Stage

Take the lead

Whether you’re advocating for change at Multnomah, helping a new club begin, or creating a new Multnomah tradition, you can make a difference in the student community.

The Student Government Association consists of full-time, traditional undergraduate students. We desire that every voice is heard and that our voices together make a difference in the school and the community. Elections for all senate positions are held in April each year.

Our student government positions include:
  • Student Body President
  • Vice President
  • Chief Financial Officer
  • Intercultural Inclusion Co-Chairs (2)
  • Sports & Recreation Chair
  • Activities Chair
  • Communications Chair

Get Involved

If you are interested in student government, please reach out to the SGA. If you have any comments or suggestions, leave a note in the Voice Box in the JCA lounge by the mailboxes. The Student Senate reviews these weekly. Your voice can make a difference! We would love to hear from you.

Connect and Serve

There are 6 paid, year-long positions available on the Commuter Assistants (CA) team. As a CA, you will be responsible for communication and care for a specified portion of the commuter population, called a “flock”. In addition to expressing hospitality involving coffee and refreshments, as a CA, you are empowered to develop intentional relationships with commuter students alongside planning and executing special events and learning sessions. This team is directly overseen by the Commuter Life Graduate Assistant.
