Student Ambassador Program

SCHOOL OF PUBLIC HEALTH

Student Ambassadors are undergraduate and graduate students who volunteer in a variety of roles including:

  • Event Hosts – Event hosts provide support for school-sponsored events including career fairs, employer information sessions, networking events, colloquium, alumni events, and honors and graduation ceremonies. Duties may include assisting with venue setup and/or teardown, greeting and checking-in guests, and other tasks to provide an outstanding participant experience.
  • Peer Mentors – Peer Mentors commit to a two-hour shift each week between the hours of 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. to assist students with career-related activities including resume reviews, mock interviews, career/major exploration and provide support for questions related to academic advising.
  • SPH Guides – SPH Guides help present during information sessions and Red Carpet Day presentations and provide tours for visiting students and their families. SPH Guides represent SPH at special events and assist with various recruitment and student engagement initiatives.

Additional details about the roles will be discussed during interviews. Participation in more than one role is encouraged. Training specific to each role will be provided.

We look for students from a variety of different backgrounds. As an ambassador, you should be willing to support students who would like to learn more about our school and programs. We look for students who are outgoing, responsible, and are a good role model for others.
