ASG Applications Now Available: Apply for Freshman Leadership Forum

The applications for Associated Student Government Freshman Leadership Forum is now available via HogSync. Students should log in with a valid uark.edu email address. The Freshman Leadership Forum is open to any first year student entering in summer or fall 2019 who meets co-curricular requirements. Students can apply via HogSync by Wednesday, Sept. 6, at noon.

The Freshman Leadership Forum (FLF) is a comprehensive leadership and personal development program designed to integrate and introduce freshmen to Associated Student Government and the shared governance process at the U of A. FLF members commit to serve September to April, thus allowing them to run or seek an appointment in ASG for the upcoming year. FLF members participate in Senate and Judicial simulations, serve office hours, attend bi-weekly meetings, learn about leadership and service, and gain the tools and skills necessary to be future ASG and campus leaders.

Interviews for the Freshman Leadership Forum program will be conducted in September. Any questions should be referred to John Hedgecock, Freshman Leadership Forum Coordinator, asgflf@uark.edu. For more information on the Freshman Leadership Forum visit asg.uark.edu/freshman-leadership-forum.
