Influential - exhibiting the ability to influence others with sound reason, judgment, and good will with respect to sociopolitical and other issues that affect student life at the University
Dedicated - volunteering to accept additional tasks, not for reasons of self-interest, but because they believe doing so will help achieve the goals of the group
