Study Abroad Ambassador Program

The Canisius College Study Abroad Ambassador program is designed to encourage study abroad alumni to become involved in international education by providing them outreach opportunities on campus. Study Abroad Ambassadors will receive direction and support from the Program Director, and ambassadors will be responsible for organizing and participating in study abroad related activities on campus. The Ambassadors will work in conjunction with the Canisius College Study Abroad Office to develop leadership and garner interest in study abroad.

Students who have studied abroad are excited to talk about their experiences when they return! The Study Abroad Ambassador Program is a great way to share your experiences and gives you an opportunity to answer potential "study abroadees" inquires. Sharing information about your time abroad will help others choose their ideal study abroad destination and is a great way to connect with Canisius College study abroad students, including past, present, and future participants.
