About Global Ambassadors
The Global Ambassadors are a group of both international and domestic students that have leadership potential who work together for the following purposes:
- To bring awareness to issues regarding international students on campus and to make their concerns and opinions heard
- To spread cultural awareness on campus and to introduce people who have never had the opportunity to travel overseas to a new experience with someone different from them
- To plan events such as the monthly Global Café, which brings a different culture to campus through food, tea or coffee, and hands-on activities
If you are interested in being a part of the Global Ambassadors, we accept applications for both fall and spring starts. Please watch your Penn State email account for information about application deadlines and how to apply.
