International Ambassador Program

International Ambassadors at Drew University

The mission of this program is to create a collaboration between domestic and international students through leadership and practice. In essence, International Ambassadors for INTO Drew University will have the chance to engage with new international students through meaningful programs, workshops, and New Student Orientation, and become student leaders for a diverse community of learners.

The International Ambassadors will participate in a variety of ways through the Office of Student Experience with INTO Drew, such as: being members of the Conversation Partners Program, leading events sponsored by INTO Drew, participating in the Global Village Learning Community with Residence Life, acting as the liaison between INTO Drew and the larger Drew community, and finally, assisting our Marketing and Recruitment Manager with INTO’s signature “familiarization trips,” which brings education counselors from around the world to learn about Drew and all the wonderful academic and student life the campus has to offer. Alongside these wide arrays of programs, the International Ambassadors will be the mentors for new and current international students to help them feel at home in the forest!
