About BOSS

Apply to join the 2019/2020 BOSS team!

The Board of Student Stakeholders (BOSS) is a committee of Claremont Colleges students who meet monthly to provide input on library services, policies, collections, spaces, programming, and technology. Members of BOSS provide feedback on current library initiatives, and serve as ambassadors and advocates for the library across the 7Cs. They work together every year to complete a $3000 library improvement project of their choice.

BOSS members serve for one academic year, which includes seven one-and-half hour meetings and any additional time that might be required to complete the improvement project (this depends on the nature of the project, which BOSS members will determine).

Applications are due Wednesday, September 18th, 2019. Students selected to be on the committed will be notified by the end of the day on Friday, September 20, 2019.

Reasons to join BOSS:

  • Gain leadership and project management experience
  • Provide feedback on library projects
  • Learn more about library and information services
  • Develop and implement a library improvement project that benefits all seven of The Claremont Colleges!
