What do UW Study Abroad Ambassadors do?

The Ambassadors are UW students who work with UW Study Abroad staff to promote study abroad to UW students in our community. The connections they make with other UW students considering study abroad are very impactful and influential.

By honing and developing professional and communication skills, the Ambassadors also foster student development and gain leadership experience, all while reflecting on their own experiences.
