Engagement Ambassadors

Engagement Ambassador Program

Students who are ambassadors for the Center for Student Wellness’s Engagement Ambassador Program will serve as leaders in engaging male-identified students on campus in conversations surrounding masculinity, gender-based violence prevention (GBVP), and mental health. 

We are looking for undergraduate students who are:  

  • Interested in having discussions on a wide range of topics related to masculinity 
  • Familiar with organizations on campus that have a large population of male-identified students  
  • Have a wide background of lived experiences as it relates to race, gender, sexuality, religion, etc. 
  • Available to be an ambassador for both Fall and Spring semesters 

These ambassadors are encouraged to spend 10-15 hours/month engaging in activities including (but not limited to):

  • Attend ongoing training on masculinity, GBVP, and mental health 
  • Participate in discussions addressing masculinity, GBVP, and mental health 
  • Advise and assist in content creation for the program 
  • Facilitate events in collaboration with Center for Studen Wellness and campus partners 
  • Increase engagement with male-identified students across campus 

Each ambassador receives a $1000 scholarship each academic year, paid in two installments (one in Fall, one in Spring). 

Ambassadors receive training in:

  • Mental Health First Aid
  • Men Can Stop Rape’s Healthy Masculinity Training Institute
  • QPR suicide prevention.
