Caucus Chair Leadership Program

It’s On Us is accepting applications for the 2023–2024 Caucus Chair Leadership Development Program! Caucus Chairs will lead the development of our caucus system, which will be opened up for all It’s On Us students to join in Fall 2023.

WHAT IS THE IT’S ON US CAUCUS PROGRAM?

The It’s On Us Caucuses provides the chance for student leaders to connect to discuss, brainstorm, and advance common goals and ideas. Starting in Fall 2023, It’s On Us will open  membership to our 12 caucuses for students to join, with each caucus representing a specific identity or social group. The caucuses will provide a forum for students to engage in conversations that will be used to shape prevention programming, recruit students, and provide rapid-response channels for our It’s On Us campus chapter network.

WHAT CAUCUSES WILL THERE BE?

We are looking for leadership roles in the following roles for the 2023-2024 Caucus Chair Leadership program: 

  • Greek Life Students Caucus (Fraternity)* 
  • Greek Life Students Caucus (Sorority)*
  • Male-Identifying Student Athletes Caucus
  • Female-Identifying Student Athletes Caucus 
  • Black Students Caucus 
  • Hispanic/Latinx Students Caucus 
  • Asian American & Pacific Islander (AAPI) Students Caucus
  • Native American/Indigenous Students Caucus
  • Community College Students Caucus 
  • Military Students Caucus 
  • LGBTQIA+ Students Caucus 
  • Students with Disabilities Caucus 

*Greek Life encompasses all fraternities and sororities including those affiliated with Interfraternity Council, Panhellenic Council, National Pan-Hellenic Council and Multicultural Greek chapters.

We recognize the intersectionality of identities amongst our caucus positions and encourage applicants to base their selection(s) on the caucus position(s) that interest them most. Students can apply to and select as many caucuses as fit the intersections of their identities.

WHO LEADS THE CAUCUSES?

Caucuses will be led by the 2023–2024 cohort of Caucus Chairs in the Leadership Development Program.

HOW OFTEN WILL CAUCUS CHAIRS MEET?

Caucus Chairs will collectively meet for Masterclass sessions bi-monthly from May–August. Individual development sessions will be scheduled once a month. 

HOW MUCH TIME WILL BE REQUIRED FOR THE CAUCUS CHAIR LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM?

Masterclass sessions will last approximately 1–1.25 hours bi-monthly, with individual development sessions lasting 15–30 minutes.

WHAT DOES A CAUCUS CHAIR DO?

Caucus Chairs will collectively meet bi-monthly to receive training in various professional organizing and leadership skills. From these training sessions, Caucus Chairs will be equipped to carry out various community engagement projects that will shape It’s On Us campus chapter programming, including listening sessions, Fireside Chats, and Fall Week of Action events. Additionally, Caucus Chairs will be responsible for creating a rapid response network that chapters can leverage in addressing issue-specific problems arising on college campuses. 

HOW LONG WILL THE PROGRAM LAST?

Caucus Chairs will be selected and onboarded the final week of May and be trained for the duration of the summer 2023 term. Upon completion of training, Caucus Chairs will begin leading their caucus in monthly meeting calls, event brainstorming sessions, and virtual events. This effort will begin August 2023 and end in May 2024.

The full term of the 2023–2024 Caucus Chairs will last from May 2023–May 2024.
