Student Leadership at MassArt is rooted in MassArt's Mission and Values and is essential to transforming MassArt’s culture and community. All student leaders will be expected to uphold MassArt's missions and values as we work together to make MassArt a more equitable place to work, learn, live and make.

All students are welcome to apply for more than one position and may do so using the application below. We will ask you to rank the positions you are applying for in preference order. You should only rank positions that you plan on applying for consideration.  You will be considered for each position of interest based upon your skill set, ability to meet departmental needs and availability.

Ultimately, we will only be able to offer you one position and will do so based on your ranking. For example, if your first choice position would like to hire you, that is the position you will be offered; if your first choice position is unable to hire you and your second choice position would like to, then you will be offered your second choice position.
