COSAM’s Commitment to the Student Experience – COSAM Leaders

“The things I appreciate the most about the COSAM Leaders include their dedication to the group and their enthusiasm for service. I have only heard of one or two instances over the past year where a Leader was late for the 7 a.m. biweekly meetings. That is impressive to me considering they have demanding academic schedules and are often involved in other organizations on-campus as well. Also, at the beginning of this semester in August, some of the Leaders, both returning and continuing, expressed their eagerness to get back to campus and be involved in the transition (whatever that may have looked like due to COVID) into the fall semester,” said Monica Baziotes, the co-advisor for the COSAM Leaders in the Office of Academic Affairs with Faculty Advsior Robert Boyd. 

The COSAM Leaders go through rigorous interviews with faculty, staff and students to be selected. Even during COVID-19, these students have continued to make a difference.

“They have been giving virtual tours of COSAM to prospective students,” shared Will Blakeley, COSAM’s Recruitment and Scholarship Coordinator. “They handle two tours per day each weekday on Zoom. We’ll also be using them to give tours at STEM visitation day later this month and will shortly start having monthly student panels with the COSAM Leaders.”
