Staff Process

  • If you submit your application by email, you should receive an email confirming receipt of the application. If you do not receive a confirmation email, please contact us at foushees@ecu.edu or phone at 252-737-1349. We will do our best to send a confirmation email to individuals who send applications through the mail.
  • Those applying to serve as a Peer Leader or CMT will participate in an on-site exercise (very similar to the leadership reaction exercises we have during the week experience). We will identify one Peer Leader applicant to serve as the leader for the team they are assigned and two CMT applicants to observe and process the team activity. Instructors will serve as evaluators during the activities for the selection process. More information to follow.
  • If you are not able to participate in the staff selection exercise, you are still eligible. However, it is very helpful for us to be able to observe how you have continued to develop your leadership skills since the summer.
    Individuals applying to serve as a Facilitator/Instructor will be individually contacted on an ongoing basis upon receipt of application.
  • All applicants will be notified of their status for the position by March 21st.
  • Those who are offered to serve in a staff position for 2014 will need to notify us of accepting the position by the beginning of April.
  • The Shelton Leadership Challenge @ ECU will be June 22-27, 2014 with staff training in April/May (TBD) and June 21. If selected for a staff position, both staff training sessions will be required.
