International Ambassador Program

The International Ambassador Program focuses on creating a mutual learning opportunity between Americans and international students. Ambassadors help international students' adjustment to living in the United States by providing both support and friendship through correspondence that begins even before international students arrive on campus. In return, international students have the opportunity to share their unique cultures, experiences and perspectives with their domestic mentors. Through this collaboration, both mentors and international students enhance their intercultural communication, leadership, and global awareness skills.

The initial commitment is one year with the option to extend for multiple semesters.

  • Undergraduate Ambassadors are required to: 1) connect with their mentee at least two times per semester, 2) attend at least two events arranged by the International Ambassador Program and the Center for International Education per semester. Schedule of events will be available in the beginning of every new semester), and 3) attend monthly member meetings.
  • Graduate Ambassadors are required to: 1) connect with their mentee at least two times per semester and 2) attend at least one event arranged by the International Ambassador Program and the Center for International Education per semester.
