What do Student Ambassadors DO?
Student Ambassadors are service-oriented individuals who advance the legacy of student leadership on our campus. By assisting with New Student Orientation, Welcome Week, Graduation, and other campus events, Student Ambassadors help their peers get involved and stay connected.

Student Ambassadors are connected to volunteer leadership roles across campus including, serving as peer mentors in our Opening Doors Learning Community, Wellness Center, Men’s Resource Center, Office of Career Development and Experiential Learning, College Discovery, and more!

How can I become a Student Ambassador?
Student Ambassadors are selected and trained the Spring before their year of service. So, Student Ambassadors who serve in the academic year 2020-2021 must apply, be selected, and participate in trainings between January 2020 - April 2020.
We are accepting application now!

What are the requirements to join?
To be eligible to serve as a Student Ambassador, you must maintain a minimum 2.0 cumulative GPA and remain in good academic and judicial standing with the college. There are no other involvement or major requirements to be eligible. All eligible applicants will complete a short interview with a Student Life staff member and 50+ students will be selected to complete the training program.

What is training like?
Student Ambassador training lasts 4 weeks. During that time, students work in small training groups of 8-12 students, led by a faculty/staff facilitator and a student co-leader. During these training groups, students learn about campus resources and opportunities, develop personal and leadership skills, practice public speaking, and more. The highlight of training is a weekend retreat, where the group gets out of Brooklyn and spends a weekend working together and bonding.

What's in it for me?
Good question! Student Ambassadors are volunteers on campus, and are not paid for their service, however, there are many other benefits! Student Ambassadors meet a large group of students, faculty, and staff from all over campus; our program is supported by faculty, ASAP staff, Student Life staff, Counseling & Health Services, the KCC Chief of Staff, and many more! Beyond networking, Student Ambassadors, through training and volunteer service, develop skill that support their academic and professional goals (i.e. leadership, public speaking, confidence, critical thinking, teamwork, responsibility, and more!!). Student Ambassadors also get some great swag, including bags, shirts, jackets, and personalized name tags. MOST importantly, Student Ambassadors get a chance to help their fellow students, and play a big role in creating a culture of support and engagement on campus.
