ACADEMIC AND CONDUCT STANDARDS FOR CAMPUS LEADERSHIP ROLES

These policies are intended to promote the college’s mission of fostering “a balance of rigorous intellectual competence, healthy personal development and strong Christian commitments” by insuring that students in leadership roles uphold minimum academic and conduct standards. It is our hope that student leaders will model commitments in their lives that serve as attractive role models consistent with the mission of the college.

Leadership standards apply to any student who is currently involved, or applying for these leadership roles:

  • Resident Assistants (RA)
  • Westmont College Student Association (WCSA)
  • Westmont Activities Council (WAC)
  • Westmont Student Ministries (WSM)
  • Orientation Team Leaders
  • Spring Sing Core Committee
  • Potter’s Clay Core Team
  • Spring Break in the City Core Team
  • Emmaus Road Core Team
  • Racial Equality and Justice Core Team (REJ)
  • Intercultural Organization Leaders and Co-Directors
  • Student Worship Team Leaders
  • Horizon Leadership Staff
  • Citadel Leadership Staff
  • Phoenix Leadership Staff

Academic Standards Policy

  • Resident Assistant applicants must have a 3.0 GPA.
  • If an applicant has below a 3.0, and above a 2.3, you will be asked to complete three supplemental essay questions to explain your academic standing.
  • If you have a 2.29 GPA or below you are ineligible to apply.
  • If a current student leader’s GPA falls below 2.3, the student will be required to meet with their organizational advisor or supervisor to discuss the situation and determine whether the student will be allowed to continue to serve in the role. It is the advisor or supervisor’s responsibility to make this decision.

Conduct Standards Policy

  • Students on Student Life probation are not eligible to apply for student leadership positions.
  • If a current student leader violates the community life standards, their organizational advisor or supervisor will be notified and the student will be required to meet with the advisor or supervisor to discuss the situation and determine whether the student should be permitted to continue to serve in the role. It is the advisor or supervisor’s responsibility to make this decision.
