What is an Owl Team Leader?
Owl Team Leaders are Temple University’s orientation leaders. Each year, a group of approximately 36 Temple undergraduate students are selected to serve as Owl Team Leaders.
What do Owl Team Leaders do?
Owl Team Leaders work with University staff, new students, and each other to create a positive, welcoming, and inclusive atmosphere for new students and their family members during summer orientation programs and beyond.
Each Owl Team Leader works closely with small groups of new students to facilitate group activities and discussions to assist students in their transition to Temple University.
In this position, Owl Team Leaders will learn and practice group facilitation and teamwork strategies, build interpersonal and intrapersonal competence, develop critical thinking skills, learn more about their own leadership style, and serve as positive role models and representatives of Temple University.
Owl Team Leaders are required to participate in a training course in the spring semester. The training course time for the 2020 Owl Team is to be announced. Owl Team Leaders are also required to work all summer orientation sessions in June, July, and August, and assist with other New Student & Family Programs initiatives, including Homecoming and Family Weekend, Owl Team recruitment, and Welcome Week Activities.
