The Vice President for Student Life’s Leader Advisory Board (LAB) is a group of student leaders who enrich the VP’s perspective on critical issues that affect the student experience. The LAB will provide a conversation space for open student-administrator dialogue that offers student input and feedback on Student Life vision, policies, processes, programming, climate and decisions related to the campus community and student engagement at UA. This group will meet monthly during the fall and spring semesters.

Composition

Staff within the division for Student Life may nominate students who are engaged on campus and invested in improving the student experience and maximizing learning experiences for current and future students. These nominations are then reviewed by the vice president, and a diverse group of students are invited to join the board to serve one-year terms that follow the academic year.
