Marquette University offers many opportunities to get involved on campus and in the Milwaukee community. Getting involved enhances your academic, cultural and professional development.

Global Ambassadors Volunteer Program

The Office of International Education is looking for outgoing, involved, current students who have a strong desire to help promote and represent Marquette University as a Marquette Global Ambassador.

The role of a Global Ambassador is to help promote Marquette to prospective international students and their families through giving presentations at your high school, sending emails to admitted students, or sharing your experience with prospective students in monthly newsletters, on social media or through online chats. If you are interested in serving as a Global Ambassador, contact Yao Andrew.
