PSP Executive Board
The Provost’s Scholars Student Executive Board is a student organization that includes first-year through third-year students. The PSP Executive Board helps establish a sense of community by planning social and service events, mentoring new Provost’s Scholars, and serving as ambassadors of the program.
As part of the Social Committee, students will design, plan, and execute programming ideas for PSP events. Members of this committee strive to bring cohorts together and build community through socials and other program events.
The Mentorship Committee is designed to assist with guiding our mentor program. As a member of this committee, students will facilitate the process of matching 1st year PSPs with 2nd and 3rd years.
The Volunteering Committee is in charge of Relay for Life, our philanthropy. This committee registers the Provost’s Scholars Program as a team, finds out our theme, incorporates our theme, and works to put on fundraising opportunities.
As the PSP/GBA Mentor Program Coordinator, it is required that you are a GloBull Ambassador. As the coordinator, you will assign interested PSP students with GBAs. You will be in contact with these students regularly through email, as well as, keep track of the GBA's hours and PSP participation. You will also work under the GBA president.
Please email us if you are interested in getting involved with the Executive Board!
What are previous board members saying about their experiences?
“Working with the volunteer committee helped me to get more involved with my fellow officers as well as the dedicated students in the PSP program. Although it wasn't always easy, it was rewarding to help others in the community through simple acts such as the Relay for Life event every year. It helped me integrate my PSP experience with the rest of my undergraduate experience as a whole.”

“I was the co-chair of the social committee for two years in the PSP. Being a part of the executive board enhanced my leadership skills and allowed me to plan exciting and fun events for the program. It didn’t come without its challenges, and we as an executive board fought to make positive change for the program."

“As a co-chair for the social committee both my second and third year as a Provost's Scholar, I helped plan, organize, and execute both social and academic focused events. The goal of our events were to help promote inter-cohort relationships within the program and to help each scholar grow academically and professionally. This position not only helped with my event organizing skills but also about how to improve the committee and the program to adapt to the needs of the scholars each semester. I have learned skills from this experience that currently help in my internship, and I am sure I will take them with me as I move on to graduate school and a career in medicine.”
