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, and QPR suicide prevention.
