What is the ISC’s Study/Volunteer/Travel Abroad Ambassadors Program?

The Study Abroad Ambassadors program was piloted in September 2008 – March 2009 with 6 amazing student leaders.  Under the general direction of the ISC Coordinator, International Students & Study Abroad Programs the peer-to-peer program promoted global opportunities to students, staff and faculty at U of T Scarborough.

With an overwhelmingly successful pilot year (including over 25 presentations, events and activities) we are back by popular demand for the 2009-10 academic year.  This year, we have expanded to 17 Peer Ambassadors who were selected from over 150 applicants!

Who are Study/Volunteer/Travel Abroad Ambassadors?

Ambassadors are friendly, outgoing, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic students who want to share their experiences abroad with other students.  Ambassadors represent the ISC at office hours, information fairs, campus events, recruitment days and orientation activities.
