The International Student Ambassador program was designed for international students to serve as cultural ambassadors and act as representatives of their countries on campus in events involving students, faculty, administrators, and national and local community members. It is a great way to become a resource for other students from their home countries by helping answer questions and to advocate for their country's student population.
Participation in the program is voluntary and the time commitment is flexible based on availability and requests. All interested students must submit a short application.
Faculty, staff, and registered student organizations (RSOs) may request an ambassador to come in and speak, present, or be involved in a cultural event/activity as needed.
