Student Leadership

Student leadership in OMA is a critical component of our ability to create programs and services that meet the needs of the Seattle University community. Applications for Connections Leadership Program Pee Mentors, Diversity and Equity Education Program Peer Educators, and Costco Scholars Advisory Board will be available Spring quarter. Please check back for more information!

Connections Leadership Program (CLP) Peer Mentors

The CLP Peer Mentors play a critical role in actualizing the vision of the Connections Leadership Program, which is to invest in the development of committed and connected leaders of color who have an awareness of self, group, and community. Peer mentors support the transition of new first-year and transfer students of color, beginning with the facilitation of the CLP Fall Immersion. CLP Peer Mentors are selected each spring to serve during the following academic year. For more information contact OMA at or visit the page

Costco Scholars

As recipients of the Costco Scholarship, students will become part of a "Costco Scholars Community." Students will be provided with opportunities to bond with other Costco Scholars, fostering a community among scholarship recipients and with the campus community, as well as creating a deeper connection between students, staff, and faculty.

Scholars will have opportunities to engage with a variety of programs and services offered through the Office of Multicultural Affairs (OMA), Career Services, and University Advancement throughout the academic year. These programs and services support the academic, personal/social, and cultural success of Costco Scholars.

For more detailed information about the Costco Scholarship Fund, please visit the page.

Costco Scholars Leadership Advisory Board

The Advisory Board works collaboratively with campus partners to plan programs and events that strengthen and sustain a sense of community among their Costco Scholar peers. Members of the Advisory Board will focus their efforts on promoting the following values: professional development, community building, academic success, and community service.

Diversity & Equity Education Program (DEEP)

Peer educators host programs and dialogues that invite students, faculty, and staff to engage critically with issues of social justice and inclusion. DEEP selection takes place each spring, and members serve during the following academic year. For more information contact Ariana Chini at
