Get Involved at RMU
As an RMU student, you have several opportunities to get involved and make a difference for the RMU community. If you are a residential student, we encourage you to run for a position in your student leadership during your first semester. All students are also welcome to join our Student Diversity Committee and Student Social Committee. Please read the sections below for more information and reach out to email@example.com to learn more about these opportunities.
Student Leadership (Residential Students)
If you are a residential student, your cohort leadership group will be organized during your first semester on campus.
Student leaders represent in their cohort and program on all matters pertaining to their general welfare as graduate students, including extracurricular activities, professional development opportunities, networking, and more. Cohort leadership councils also service as liaisons to their cohort and communicate with their program, other RMU student cohort leadership councils, and the University
To get in touch with your cohort’s leadership group, reach out to your program coordinator or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Student Diversity Committee (All Students)
Student Diversity Committee (SDC) members represent the needs and interests of student diversity and the inclusion of multicultural issues campus-wide. The SDC provides a climate and culture that fosters, promotes, and encourages social interactions that support a profound appreciation and celebration of our differences. The SDC strikes to eliminate or reduce inequities and prevent furture inequities between different groups of people. The SDC works with Student Affairs (SA), the Office of Institutional Equity (OIE), and academic departments to enhance cross-cultural understanding and break down stereotypes.
All current RMU students are invited to be a part of the SDC! If you would like to be involved, please contact your current SDC chair, Amber Helton, at email@example.com.
Student Social Association (all students)
Student Social Association (SSA) members represent the social needs and interests of all students by providing non-academic opportunities for student engagement through student-run activities. The Student Social Association strives to build a unified campus community where all residential and non-residential students can come together and create lasting social connections.
All current RMU students are invited to be a part of the Sstudent Social Association! If you’d like to be involved, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Student Service Association (all students)
The Student Service Association helps create student-led opportunities for RMU students to provide service and be involved in the community.
All current RMU students are invited to be a part of the Student Service Association! If you’d like to be involved, please contact email@example.com.
Every year, Student Affairs organizes an annual service event in Utah that all students are invited to participate in. Every residential student leadership also has a Service Chair who provides opportunities for their cohorts to serve.
Please contact your Service Chair for more information.
