What is the College Student Leader Board?
The College Student Leader Board (SLB) consists of approximately 20 members who act as a liaison between Volunteer Services, the college student volunteers, and the Staff Volunteer Supervisors (SVS) in their assigned areas. These leadership positions coordinate 800+ college student volunteers throughout University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics in any given year.
Our SLB members are facilitators and managers for the college volunteers, serving to make the volunteer experience both more enjoyable and worthwhile. SLB members attend monthly board meetings, build relationships with their SVS, schedule and coordinate trainings for their volunteers and mentors, and administer the volunteer schedule for their areas.
Positions are very competitive, and assignments are made in March and continue through May of the following year.
How do I become a Student Leader Board member?
College student volunteers typically apply to be a Student Leader Board member the second semester of their sophomore year, but freshmen, juniors, and graduate or non-traditional students are welcome to apply as long as they are volunteering to prepare for a career in the health sciences. Student Leader Board members must be available to serve a one-year May to May leadership term.
Applications for our 2024-2025 Student Leader Board will become available in January, 2024.
