Meet the RU Captains Council

Captains' Council

The members of the RU Captains’ Council help to better prepare our current varsity RU athletic team leaders.

Leadership is something that is both innate and that must also be fostered through experience.

The Captains’ Council meets bi-weekly to discuss various aspects of leadership; to organize and lead service experiences for the benefit of the athletics community; and to recommend non-captain student athletes to attend the Student Leadership Conference (held in November each year).

Membership to the Captains’ Council is comprised of named captains across all RU sponsored varsity sports teams. The definition of an RU captain: A captain must lead by example and also display leadership characteristics such as humility, compassion, and fair and consistent treatment of themselves and others in the body and spirit of their team.
