The Student Leadership Team
Being a Navigator at the U of S is all about participating in the activities and engaging with the Navigator beliefs and values. We welcome all students and their friends from all walks of life. The Student Leadership Team at the U of S acts as the rebar to this group to give it a little structure for planning and becoming an official USSU group. These students are nominated each school year, and are responsible for developing the program and setting the tone for the group. If you have any questions or want more information about how you can get involved please contact James Powell or Robert Koop.
