Global Ambassadors Program

Global Ambassadors is an academic enhancement program offering mentoring, extracurricular and international experiential learning designed for students interested in careers in international service organizations, including the Foreign Service. This program will create meaningful interaction between the students and distinguished professionals in such organizations who are working on global questions and challenges.

The program will be directed by Ambassador Jim Melville, the Associate Dean of International and Community Outreach for LCWA.  He will meet regularly with the students and create appropriate learning opportunities, such as presenting materials appropriate for an introduction to the career interest, setting up and participating in advising and discussion sessions, arranging interactions with other eminent professionals, and assisting the student-ambassadors in executing projects on a global challenge.

 

For details, see the attached announcement and visit the website: http://lcwa.cofc.edu/global-ambassadors-program/index.php 

Applications are due April 3.

Student feature in The College Today

Student Megan Stover, a double major in Spanish and public health, pushed for nearly two years to open a campus food pantry after a class project tasked her with creating a plan to make a difference on campus.

“After its opening, there have been so many students, staff and faculty that have reached out to me in order to donate, find ways to collaborate or simply learn more about the pantry,” says Stover, who serves as the pantry’s president. “I hope that we can increase collaboration with other organizations on our campus in order to increase awareness and decrease the amount of stigma that can be associated with being food insecure or needing help. Everyone needs help from time to time, and no one should feel ashamed about that.”
