Leadership experience complements the academic curriculum at MassArt and empowers students to become more confident, engaged artists, designers and citizens. Students have the opportunity to apply for various paid positions to be held during their sophomore through senior years.  

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.

can i apply for more than one position?

Yes! And we encourage you to do so!  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.  You will be considered for each position of interest based upon your skill set, ability to meet departmental needs and availability.  

can i hold more than one position?

In some instances, you may be offered more than one position (as long as the total hours do not exceed 20 hours/week).  You can apply for multiple positions, but some of them may not be able to be held at the same time.  In that situation, we will refer to your ranking order.  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.


If you are applying for one of the following positions, you will need to attend Group Interview Day on Saturday, February 12th: RA, Orientation Primer, MAC Board, Volunteer Coordinator, Admissions Student Ambassador.  Save the date now!  After group interview day, you will be contacted about whether or not you will be moving forward to the individual interview stage.

All other positions will automatically have an individual interview with the Hiring Manager(s) for that position.  You will receive instructions about signing up for interviews in late January. Interviews will take place between February 14-March 4, 2022.
