Through practical, service-oriented experiences, Student Advancement Leaders develop skills and knowledge in the following areas:

  • Samford history
  • Professionalism
  • Public relations
  • Philanthropy
  • Leadership

Student Advancement Leaders are vital to Samford as their work helps secure resources that make a Samford education possible for current and future students. When they call, we hope you’ll answer. Each conversation and every gift to scholarships makes a difference for our students!
