College of Management students are encouraged to enhance their academic experience with on-campus co-curricular activities. Involvement not only provides an opportunity to meet new people, but allows you a chance to apply skills outside of the classroom in leadership roles or collaborative efforts and can enhance your resume as well.
There are student clubs and organizations within the college that are closely related to a variety of our academic disciplines, including the Xi Phi chapter of the co-ed professional fraternity Delta Sigma Pi and international nonprofit Enactus. There are also leadership opportunities available through the College of Management Ambassadors Program. Students who are interested in a wide range of activities or leadership roles are also encouraged to explore groups that are coordinated through the UMass Boston Office of Student Activities and Leadership.
Leadership Opportunities Within the College of Management
CM ambassadors play an active role in the Management Achievement Program (MAP) as they assist in the facilitation and management of MAP events, as well as help guide fellow students through the program. CM ambassadors also represent the college at events such as Welcome Day and Open House, as well as other events sponsored by the CM Dean’s Office and the college. Ambassadors represent the best of our students with their professional demeanor, knowledge of the college, and willingness to help others.
Peer mentors in the TRAIL (Transfer Resources for Achievement, Involvement, and Leadership) Program assist incoming College of Management students as they transition from a community college or a four-year institution. TRAIL mentors work collaboratively with each other and the student services specialist to implement supportive resources, class topics, and events for incoming transfer students.
Peer LEADers in the LEAD Progam help new students navigate the transition to UMass Boston and the College of Management. LEADers will work together with each other and the student services specialist to connect with incoming first-year students and are responsible for planning co-curricular events and activities for the community, with support from the staff in the College of Management.
