Student Leadership

The Jessup Student Leadership Program equips students to be Christ-centered transformational leaders through competency-based learning and experiential professional leadership development beyond their academic program. 

Students who participate in the Jessup Student Leadership Program will be equipped to: 

  • Help fulfill the university’s mission in educating transformational leaders by producing change and building lives through authenticity, inspiration, empathy, and innovation.
  • Develop transferable skills making students exceptionally employable in their chosen field upon completion of their education at Jessup.
Positions and scholarship amounts vary each year depending on need.
  1. Approximately 100 student leaders are hired for each coming academic year.
  2. Scholarships range in amounts depending on roles and responsibilities.
  3. Student leaders agree to uphold the Community Covenant, abide by the Student Handbook, agree to a leadership contract, and set behavioral expectations. Student leaders also attend required training before each semester and participate in a student leadership seminar course each semester.
  4. Student Government Association (SGA) has elections in the spring before serving with a freshman representative election in early fall for incoming first-year students. The SGA scholarships range depending on the officer or representative responsibilities and provide students with another opportunity to lead.
