Student Leadership Opportunities

The Office of Residential Life offers three distinct student leadership programs: Res Life student staff, College House Officers, and Peer Health.

Student Leadership Programs

  • Res Life student staff are present in all dorms, supporting students and offering multiple ways for community building and engagement.  They are trained in building and fostering diverse communities, how to access resources throughout Bowdoin, and conflict resolution among many other topics.

  • College House Officers shape the culture of each College House for their members, first-year affiliates as well as the wider Bowdoin and Brunswick communities.  College house officers undergo extensive training in programming, inclusivity, and neighborhood relationships.

  • Peer Health promotes community well-being through individual conversations with first-year students, small group facilitations, and campus-wide programs.  Peer health leaders undergo training on all aspects of health and well-being at Bowdoin as well as how to have conversations with other students around challenging topics.
