DEPARTMENTS & OFFICES > RMU CITADEL > ENGAGED LEARNING > SET CATEGORIES > LEADERSHIP
The goal of this category is to encourage students to take action and influence others to make a positive difference for the university and the community at large. A student leader is one that holds the position of head, or related complementary positions such as cabinet member, officer, or official, of a University recognized group, organization, or activity. The leadership position requires him/her to plan and organize tasks, events, and functions individually or with the assistance of his/her peers. Evidence of a student holding a leadership position shall consist of documentation from the organization outlining the leader's successful election or appointment to the leadership position and the academic term(s) of the position.

Getting SET Category Approval
Beginning with the Fall 2014 semester:
To receive SET approval for the Leadership category, students can submit the activity through their Sentry Secured Services account upon or near completion of the academic term.
Log into the account and click on Submit SET Activity under Academics: Sentry Secured Services. The RMU SET Guide to Submitting an Activity gives step-by-step instructions on completing this process.
Please note that these experiences can only be approved by the faculty/staff advisor for the organization, group, or activity. Only authorized approvals will be processed.
*If a student is part of a large group or class submitting the same activity to one faculty/staff member, please ask authorizing faculty/staff member his or her preference for submission of this activity. He or she may prefer to submit the activity as a group.
