The Global Ambassador Program was developed for Stevens study abroad returnees who enjoyed their international experiences in all aspects and now want to volunteer their time and effort to help other Stevens students find out about the many study abroad opportunities available to them. The Global Ambassadors are trained to help new students, explaining program options, giving an overview of the study abroad process and, of course, talking about their own experiences.
The Role of Global Ambassador
While in the program, Global Ambassadors will:
Lead study abroad presentations, drawing on personal experience and following an outline
Peer advise students on study abroad options
Promote study abroad through special programs/events
Refer students’ specific questions regarding programs and procedures to the Director of the Office of International Programs
All ambassadors are required to participate in study abroad events and general training/reflection meetings.
