The EDHD Student Ambassadors exist to create opportunities for student leaders to enhance their personal and professional capabilities through supporting the goals, values, and ideals of the College of Education and Human Development. EDHD Student Ambassadors help to provide insight into the challenges and celebrations affecting its students and promote the college to prospective students and their families. 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. EDHD Student Ambassadors remain ambassadors to the college even after graduation.
As a student ambassador for the College of Education and Human Development, you will engage with current students, and prospective 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.
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 member. After the nomination is received, candidates are asked to participate in an interview with members of the executive board and the staff advisor.
