Please note: We are not accepting applications at this time. This page reflects our selection process for Fall 2013–Spring 2014 International and Spiritual Student Ambassadors. Please check your email for announcements regarding openings and selection for future semesters.
Spiritual Student Ambassador
St. Ambrose, as a Catholic Diocesan University, is proud to enroll students from all faiths and Christian denominations who come to college to enrich themselves and learn to discern who God wants them to be. Our Spiritual Student Ambassador is the key peer for our spiritual community, providing a warm welcome during orientation, maintaining contact through programming and outreach, and assisting students faith exploration opportunities, discussion, and in participation in our various Campus Ministry offerings.
The Student Ambassador position is overseen by Campus Ministry. The estimated time commitment is 10 hours per week during the academic year. Compensation is still being determined.
The ideal Ambassador is mature, has integrity and cares for their own spiritual life. He or she must have a genuine appreciation for all faiths and the ability to respect that each person has the right to develop at their own pace and style. Volunteer work and other student leadership is encouraged but not required. The most important asset is an eagerness to develop their own spiritual life and to help others do the same.
Starting in Fall 2013, the Spiritual Student Ambassadors will be required to live in the Spiritual Community of McCarthy Hall.
If you have further questions please contact Fr. Chuck Adam at AdamCharlesA@sau.edu.
International Student Ambassador
St. Ambrose is proud to host students from around the world, who come here to experience a high quality American education as an inclusive, engaging community. Our International Student Ambassadors are the key peer mentors to our international students, providing a warm welcome during orientation, maintaining contact through programming and outreach, and assisting students with everyday needs such as shopping.
The Student Ambassador position is overseen by the International Student Advisor in the Center for International Education. Student Ambassadors receive free, on-campus accommodation in return for an estimated time commitment of 10 hours per week during the academic year.
The ideal Ambassador is someone with maturity, integrity, and a genuine appreciation for other cultures. Study abroad or other international experience is desirable but not necessary. The most important asset is an eagerness to learn from those with different perspectives.
Starting in Fall 2013, the Student Ambassadors will be strongly encouraged to live in the International Community in McCarthy Hall.
