Student Ambassadors are our campus liaisons who help us connect with their university, publicize events, and plan new partnerships. Students also have opportunities in becoming more involved with Carnegie Council activities as invited guests as well as participants in public programs, such as Carnegie New Leaders, Public Affairs, and U.S. Global Engagement.
Other special events at the Council are sometimes extended to Student Ambassadors. These have included field trips to the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, participating in focus groups with the Carnegie Climate Geoengineering Governance Initiative (C2G2), and invitations to attend Carnegie New Leaders networking events, among other social and educational activities.
Because every university is different, we offer several ideas on how best to bring the Council's work to your school. You are welcome to implement, combine, and/or make variations to the suggestions below:
- Submit a short article to our Carnegie Ethics Online monthly column
- Organize peers and classmates to attend Student Ambassador programs and other Carnegie Council events
- Invite classmates and peers to join the Ambassador Network
- Contact the director of your academic office about your campus participating in Global Ethics Day, October 17, 2018. (visit globalethicsday.org for more information)
- Organize working groups on ethics. Visit our Education Section for reading list, activities, and ideas
- Engage with campus groups that promote leadership and ethics, and post your activities on the Global Ethics Network
- Help us promote Carnegie events and educational resources through your social networks and social media
- Take part in and help promote our annual International Student Essay Contest and Student Research Conference
Ambassadors have a strong passion for ethical leadership, a commitment to social and global justice, and a desire to learn and become involved with Carnegie Council. Carnegie Council Student Ambassadors come from a variety of academic majors, including: political science; business; law; art history; and media studies, for example. Ambassadors have the opportunity to obtain professional development, explore their leadership and communication talents, and gain access to a unique career network in international affairs.
