Global Ambassador Application

Mission: Global Ambassadors will assist new international students in adjusting to life at IUP during their first semester or year through one-on-one mentoring and group activities that facilitate cross-cultural learning and academic success.

Application due date: April 5, 2014

All new international students within their first and second semester are eligible for this program. You will be put in a group of new international students along with two Global Ambassadors. The Global Ambassadors will contact you once per week to check-in and see how you are adjusting to life in the United States. They will also plan monthly activities for you to get to know others and become involved in the IUP campus community. This is strictly a volunteer program, however, we have high expectations of our Ambassadors, and ask that you contact the OIE if you are not being contacted or involved in activities. Questions should be directed to
