The College of Education Student Ambassador Program is a yearlong internship, which offers students the opportunity to become more involved in the college community. During the first semester, student ambassadors, who are invited to join the program based on meeting certain criteria, participate in a three credit course in which they learn about various aspects of the College and University.
Students also receive training so that they can participate actively and knowledgeably in recruitment, orientation, open houses, and other events during their second semester in the program. They provide an important resource, answering questions about the College's undergraduate, graduate, teacher certification, certificate, and off-campus programs. As part of the internship, the sophomore and junior undergraduate students in the program also complete a capstone project in the form of peer-led workshops.
The student ambassador program is led by Jessica Chew and Matthew Sinclair, both academic advisors in Student Services.
