4. Position description:

The College Project Officer is the chair of the College Project that is given to Phi Theta Kappa by the administration based on what they see the most pressing need of the college and its student body to be. My responsibilities are to preside over the committee meetings, implement goals for the project and make sure that those goals are met. It is the responsibility of the committee chair to make sure that we- the committee maintains consistent collaboration with the school administration, as is necessary; I also must see that all four of our Phi Theta Kappa Hallmarks are implemented into the project- that is scholarship, leadership, service and fellowship. Lastly, it is my responsibility to direct the writing of our Hallmarks award application, which is to be turned into Headquarters near the end of the year.

5.  Goals for PTK:

My goal as College Project Officer is to do my part in making sure that College Project is something that our entire chapter feels proud of, and that each member of the committee walks away from this year feeling accomplished, and like they truly made a difference in the lives of the student body of Mesa Community College. As an Officer, I hope to lead effectively by example through exemplifying the four hallmarks and acting as a pillar for my fellow Phi Theta Kappa members.
