Student Ambassadors
The College of Education and Human Development (EDHD) Student Ambassador organization creates opportunities for students to enhance their personal and professional leadership skills by supporting the goals, values and ideals of the College and its academic programs. The EDHD Student Ambassadors represent the college at university functions and events, and provide information on the many majors and programs available to prospective and current students.

Mission
As a student ambassador for the College of Education and Human Development, you will engage with current students, and perspective students and their families to promote and support the goals of the College. Furthermore, EDHD Student Ambassadors work to broaden the College’s identity on a local, regional and national level, and contribute to the Bowling Green community and Northwest Ohio by participating in several service projects. 
 
Membership 
All undergraduate students currently enrolled in a program or major within the College of Education and Human Development are eligible for membership. Potential members must be in good academic standing and must remain in good standing during their tenure as an ambassador. 
 
Students interested in becoming a Student Ambassador must first solicit a nomination by an EDHD faculty or staff member or a current ambassador. After the nomination is received, candidates are asked to participate in an interview with members of the executive board and the staff advisor. 
 
Membership is open to students of BGSU without regard to sex, gender identity, genetic information, gender expression, sexual orientation, race, color, religion, ancestry, national origin, marital status, disability, pregnancy, military status, age, or status as a Special Disabled or Vietnam-era veteran.

Member Requirements
Members are required to attend all general meetings. Members that cannot attend a meeting must notify the secretary prior to the meeting date. Members are also required to volunteer at various events and functions throughout the year.

Meetings
EDHD Student Ambassadors meet as a general assembly once a month. The executive board may call a special meeting of the general assembly when necessary.
 
Social Engagement and Professional Development
Student Ambassadors host a minimum of one social engagement or professional development program per semester. During these events, students have the opportunity to engage with other students, represent and promote the College and learn about trends and issues in the workplace.
