The committees that we have are the following:
The Community Management committee is dedicated to 2 different focus points: Social Media and Community Engagement. Social Media overlooks all of our social media from Facebook to Imgur, and its members actively participate in interacting with the community digitally. This is great if you are looking to gain valuable experience in running social media for a large organization. Our second focus is Community Engagement, which is our group of ambassadors who interact with the community on a face to face level. They listen to community concerns and successes, and if you love working with people and advocacy, this could be the committee for you!
This committee is responsible for managing the competitive club teams within Rutgers Esports. We work with team staff to coordinate practices and matches, while also ensuring that player opinions and voices are represented within the Rutgers Esports Executive Board. During the competitive season, you will be essential staff to help each teams’ coordinator and captain. During events, you will be responsible for officiating our various tournaments. To join this committee, you will need a love of competitive Esports, have a need to self-improve, and be able to give and take constructive criticism.

Content Creation Committee is responsible for creating graphic content for Rutgers Esports. The committee has two parts; Video and Graphic Design. Video is responsible for taking pictures and videos to be able to work with Hype Videos, Partnership Highlights, Player Engagements, Community Engagement, etc. Graphic Design is responsible for working in Adobe Programs to be able to create graphic logos, banners, brb screens, overlays, buttons, partnership announcements, etc. Anything that is visual coming from Rutgers Esports onto the social media, events, clubs, etc. usually comes from this committee.
The main responsibility of the Events Committee is to make sure that our events are set up properly and run as smoothly as possible. The role of the committee prior to our events is to reserve the venue in advance, communicate with the Rutgers Events Coordinator on what we need and have for the event, plan out the schedule for both the event and the stream, create a list of items that we need to purchase for the event, and manage the giveaway items and schedule. On the day of our events, the Events Committee is expected to arrive early to help set up and remain available throughout the day to fill in for our various stations or help with unforeseen issues that occur, as well as staying late to help with clean up. As a member of this committee, you will need and improve upon your time management, organizational, and leadership skills through tasks that require efficient delegation to make our events the best they can be.
Honesty and integrity, these two traits are imperative to have when pursuing a role with the Rutgers Esports Financial Committee. The Finance Committee is responsible for maintaining the club’s finances with the Student Activities Business Office also called SABO. This is done by paying invoices, filing PERRs, and fulfilling contracts. The Finance Committee must manage these records and follow the guidelines set by Rutgers. Beyond this they must stay in contact with the financial advisors in SABO to clear up any concerns they may have with them.
The Human Resources Committee handles everything involving the internal affairs of Rutgers Esports. Our responsibilities range from preventing and solving interpersonal problems on the board, creating and planning events and programs for the officers, and recruiting new officers to the board.
