The positions in our leadership team are diverse to fit the needs of not only Auburn’s community but also the varying skill sets of Honors College students. They are looking for multiple applicants to fill almost every position, but you can apply for more than one position (keep in mind that you will probably be selected for only one position though). All of the applications will be found under the ‘forms’ tab on AUInvolve, and descriptions for each position can be found within each application. All of the applications will close Sunday, March 13 at midnight, and interviews will be held after spring break! If you have any questions, please feel free to email Kathleen Jadoonath.

Up to 14 Honors students are chosen each year to represent the Honors College and recruit potential students at various events through the year. Applications to become an Honors Ambassador are now open. Please download the application form. Deadline is March 11.
