Student Ambassador program seeking new volunteers

Published Monday, April 17, 2017

Student Ambassadors are current undergraduate and graduate WSU College of Education students who volunteer throughout the year to help with student recruitment efforts in the college. Our student ambassadors serve as a point of contact for prospective students and various outreach events that the college hosts throughout the year. By providing a voice from the students’ perspective to promote both our undergraduate and graduate programs, ambassadors support retention initiatives such as:

  • Return to Wayne
  • Provide various services to college and university events
  • Conduct campus tours for new and prospective students
  • Assist with duties and tasks related to events hosted by the college
  • Opportunities for service with the college and the university out in the community
  • Work with diverse populations

We are seeking new volunteers:

  • Are you service minded and enjoy giving back to your school and community?
  • Do you enjoy meeting and interacting with new and current students, faculty members and staff?
  • As a WSU Warrior, are you proud that you’ve accepted a program of study in the field of education?
  • Are you interested in networking, interacting and building professional relationships?

If so, the College of Education invites you to become a member of our COE Student Ambassador program.  Eligibility requirements are:

  • Must be a current undergraduate or graduate student enrolled in the College of Education
  • Undergraduate students must have a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or higher
  • Graduate students must have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher
  • Candidates will be interviewed and required to attend a mandatory training and orientation session, date to be announced.

If selected to become a Student Ambassador, you will be expected to serve a minimum of 15 service hours per semester while supporting COE and WSU sponsored programs and events.

Note: If you are a recent graduate of the College of Education at Wayne State University, you can participate. Alumni members are also invited to return and serve as ambassadors.

Interested students and alumni members are asked to contact one of the two program coordinators listed below.
