About our Staff Members

  • 28 staff members, all of which are Biola students
  • Led by a Board of Directors and the SMU President
  • Students from every major are on staff because we require a diverse set of giftings

100% Student Led

Students run all aspects of the organization, collaborating with a faculty supervisor from Biola's Intercultural Studies Department

Each staff position is a one year commitment, and several of our staff members return for second and third years in the organization.
