Student Ambassador Program Launched

The Education Department is pleased to introduce its Student Ambassador Program, which will provide opportunities for student-directed volunteer support both for the Education Department and for Marywood University.
Student Ambassadors are students in good academic standing who are willing to support the Education Department's goals. Ambassadors will act as a contact person, guide, and mentor for prospective students to Marywood's Education Department, and they will assist with social media efforts.
Further, Ambassadors will:
  • attend an orientation program in mid-February
  • contact prospective education students as requested
  • post on social media at least once per week
  • attend scheduled meetings of the Student Ambassadors
  • represent the Education Department at outreach events to include Open Houses, Partners in Education meetings, and other relevant events throughout the year
  • maintain and submit a monthly activity log.
Students who are interested in becoming an Ambassador must complete an application and return it by Friday, January 30. They may be submitted to Dr. Chris Fryer or Tricia Richards.
