The Center for Student Formation employs four, part-time graduate assistants who are concurrently enrolled in a graduate academic program at BC. These positions are each assigned to support a specific program or area of function within our office.

As these positions coincide with academic graduate programs, they are typically offered for a two year contract cycle and therefore we are not hiring for these positions annually. For more information on the availability of these positions and details on how to apply, please contact our team by emailing

Halftime Leads help participants understand the themes of Halftime and talk about how to implement these themes into daily life at BC and beyond. If you enjoyed your Halftime experience or would like the opportunity to lead a retreat, you should apply to lead Halftime!

A Stride Lead is a junior or senior leader interested in helping sophomore students "find their stride" and feel established at BC. Leads will join their small group of co-ed sophomores at three evening events, share their story during Stride Lead panels, and engage in weekly small group discussions.

Stride is a program specifically designed to help sophomores feel established at BC.

The program introduces second-year student leaders and faculty on campus through a lecture and panel series, builds social connections through regular co-ed small groups, and helps students grow as leaders through a formational retreat experience. 

The purpose of the sophomore formation program is to help students begin to ask bigger questions about who they are and who they want to be as a person. In order to be a leader, you first have to know yourself. Stride combines an academic, social, and spiritual approach to help second-year students integrate different aspects of their lives on campus.
