Student Leadership Criteria

 Samford University encourages students to immerse themselves in campus life, including leadership in one of the many registered student organizations or University sponsored student leadership opportunities. In order to preserve the integrity of student academic performance, the following criteria have been established for individuals to hold leadership positions and to serve in executive level leadership roles in student groups and organizations.

Students seeking to hold an executive leadership role in a student organization or University sponsored organization must adhere to the following:

  • Must be a full-time student in good standing with the university, free of any disciplinary or academic action at the time a leadership role is sought.
  • Must possess a grade point average no less than 2.0; individual groups and organizations may require a higher GPA
  • Be responsible for upholding Samford’s Code of Values

Stated standards in the handbook are minimum standards that may be supplemented or enhanced by an organization or group’s requirements.
