The mission of the Student Ambassadors program is to develop student leaders who serve as official hosts of the Bagwell College of Education facilitating events, promoting student engagement, and supporting student success through community outreach and recruitment.
Students will be selected to represent the Bagwell College of Education as Student Ambassadors and serve as hosts at a variety of College- and University-sponsored events, such as career days, recruiting activities, alumni functions, special visitation days, high school student activities, seminars, and receptions. Student Ambassadors engage with potential students, alumni, donors, and community members and play a key role in fostering relationships and promoting a positive, caring, diverse and inclusive culture in the Bagwell College of Education.
Student Ambassadors will:
- Facilitate Bagwell College of Education orientation activities
- Give building tours in the Bagwell College of Education
- Meet with prospective students
- Support outreach and recruitment initiatives
- Provide support at Bagwell events such as open houses, welcome-back events, and other honors and recognition ceremonies
- Engage in promotional social media projects
Student Ambassadors are required to attend monthly meetings during fall and spring semesters, attend a fall retreat in August to plan for the year, and assist with various events throughout the year.
As a Student Ambassador you will develop leadership, communication, and networking skills that will serve you well throughout your educational career. You will receive training and learn all about the resources and facilities available to students at KSU and in the Bagwell College of Education. This position will be an excellent addition to your resume. You will also receive KSU swag to wear when representing the university.
