Cultural Ambassador Program

Fall 2020 Update

Due to the COVID-19 public health emergency, Cultural Ambassadors has been cancelled for the Fall 2020 Semester. We look forward to resuming Cultural Ambassadors in future semesters. 

 

What is Cultural Ambassadors?

In this semester-long program, we pair International and U.S. students in small groups based on mutual interests and hobbies. Students have the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of different cultures, as well as the chance to make new friends from all across the U.S and the world while engaging in fun activities together.

We host 4 events throughout the semester, and groups are responsible for finding a time to meet up 3 times. If a student does 6 activities with their group, they can add “Cultural Ambassador” on their Co-Curricular Transcript.

 

Why join Cultural Ambassadors?

There are many benefits for both international and domestic student participants by joining Cultural Ambassadors. The U.S. Cultural Ambassador helps international students in many ways. They will be there to have conversations in English with international students, answer questions about the U.S. culture, their academic experience, and school rules and regulations. The International Cultural Ambassador shares their culture and traditions and helps the U.S. students expand their worldview.
