Cohort Leadership Opportunities

Leaders in the cohort system work collaboratively to plan activities and events for their individual cohorts and the larger Wharton community. Each cohort has one president, one community director, two freshman directors, and one freshman representative.

Cohort Presidents are juniors and seniors that oversee their respective cohorts in addition to serving on the Cohort Executive Board, which is comprised of the nine cohort presidents and two co-chairs. The presidents and Board work directly with the Undergraduate Division to implement the strategies and objectives of the cohort system. This position is held for one year with the opportunity to reapply. Cohort presidents must have previously served in the cohort system in a non-freshman representative role.

Cohort Community Directors are sophomores, juniors, or seniors who serve as peer mentors and plan activities for their respective cohorts. There are nine community directors. This position is held for one year with the opportunity to reapply.

Cohort Freshman Directors are sophomores or juniors who serve as peer mentors and plan activities for their respective freshman cohorts. This position is held for one year with the opportunity to reapply.

Freshman Cohort Representatives are freshmen who are selected in September to serve as liaisons between their cohort peers and their cohort director. They help create community within their respective cohort by planning events and initiatives with other cohort leaders. This position is held for one year.

Cohort Mentors serve as upperclass mentors to freshmen in their cohort. Mentors and mentees connect as pairs by setting up coffee breaks and other activities.
