Through collaboration with our faculty and staff, College Council aims to enhance faculty-student relations and represent our student body to the Undergraduate Student Government and to the College. Membership is open to all College of Global Futures undergraduate students, and elections for leadership positions are held at the end of the fall semester.
Sophomore Leadership Program
The College of Global Futures Sophomore Leadership Program is an opportunity for students entering their second year in a CGF major. This program will provide second year students with leadership development training and opportunities while also providing peer mentorship to new incoming students in the College of Global Futures. The application for this program typically opens in the spring semester and will be announced via email and through the student newsletter.
Residential Community Paraprofessional
Each academic year, a student is hired to serve the College of Global Futures Residential Community. This position lives in the community and helps mentor and connect with students living in the community. They help to maintain the community garden and provide programming opportunities for residents. The application for this position typically opens in the spring semester.
CGF 101 course facilitators
Each fall a group of highly involved students, typically junior or senior standing, are selected to facilitate the CGF 101 Introduction to ASU and CGF courses for incoming first year and transfer students. These facilitators help mentor new students through their first semester at the university, sharing their own background and knowledge about navigating and maximizing their college experience. CGF 101 facilitators develop their skills in public speaking, lesson planning, writing, interpersonal communication and teaching, among others.
Each spring, four students choose to compete at ASU Academic Bowl as representatives of College of Global Futures. Cheer on our team of students as they compete for a championship title, trophy, and scholarship money. Contact our office if you are interested in joining our team.
