Honors Ambassador Position Description
Summer and Fall 2017 Openings
About the Honors Ambassador Program The Honors Ambassador Program is comprised of a diverse and dedicated group of outstanding students who want to share their Honors College experiences with prospective students and help build community within the Honors College. Ambassadors will gain experience in recruitment and event planning and have the opportunity to develop their leadership and public speaking skills among other things. They also have the opportunity to form connections with Honors College staff, students, alumni, and each other.
The Honors College is looking for students to serve as Honors Ambassadors for Fall ‘17. In addition to volunteering as an Ambassador in Fall ‘17, you will also have the opportunity to apply for a paid Ambassador position for Summer ‘17 to assist with Orientation and summer projects. In the Fall, the Honors Ambassadors will consist of approximately twelve (12) students to work alongside our four (4) Ambassador Officers. Appointments may continue into the Spring ‘18, but are not expected if students have plans to be away from campus. (Students may apply for any open officer position after serving in the organization for at least one semester. These positions are paid.)
Summer positions will involve 12-16 hours of work per week. Students need to be available on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons. Over the summer, students will be paid $12/hr.
During the school year, time commitments will vary depending on the time of year. Main responsibilities will be volunteering at recruitment events and events for current students.
On an irregular basis, Ambassadors assist with weekend events.
Examples of Honors Ambassadors in Action
Ambassadors assist with information sessions--large presentation or personal meetings--where they meet with prospective students and share their experiences in the Honors College.
Ambassadors represent the Honors College at recruitment events (Meet the SCHC, Open Houses, etc.) and assist with outreach efforts to prospective students and their parents, as well as alumni.
Ambassadors coordinate and assist with programs and events, including current initiatives such as Freshmen Flotilla and Bedtime Stories, as well as develop new programming.
Ambassadors maintain a blog and the SCHC Instagram to share SCHC news and helpful tips for current and prospective students.
Additional responsibilities may include assisting with the workshops, Parents Weekend Picnic, supporting Faculty Fellow initiatives, attending alumni receptions, responding to inquiries from prospective students, recruiting new Honors Ambassadors, and other duties as assigned.
Summer is less busy with programming, so Ambassadors are primarily assisting with orientation and SCHC information sessions for prospective students.
Requirements for Ambassadors
Applicants should be members in good standing of the Honors College and have completed at least one semester in the Honors College. Upperclassmen, lowerclassmen, and transfers are all encouraged to apply.
Prior to summer orientation and the Fall ‘17 semester, there will be required trainings for all Ambassadors. Ambassadors attend monthly meetings for ongoing training and professional development and have check-ins with Honors Ambassador advisors.
