Become a Global Key Ambassador and share your study abroad experiences with your fellow Villanovans!
Global Key Ambassadors (GKA) serve as a resource to other Villanova students about study abroad by providing support for the Office of Education Abroad and assisting with office events and activities. Through this volunteer position, GKAs will gain experience in a professional office and acquire knowledge about international education. Additionally, participants will continue to learn from and reflect on their personal experiences through interactions with their peers during outreach events and presentations. Many of the activities GKAs participate in will develop presentation skills and confidence speaking to crowds, such as:
- Presenting weekly Information sessions
- Weekend events such as Parents weekend, Early Action Candidates Day, Study Abroad Fair, and Candidates weekend
- Participation in Pre-departure Orientation to serve as a resource for your peers as they prepare for their semester overseas
- Preparatory training to develop a working knowledge of the the Office of Education Abroad and Study Abroad at Villanova in order to address student questions, reference university and other resources, and present personal experiences
Along with developing such skills, getting involved in Global Key is a way to gain leadership roles on campus. There are chair positions available falling under the categories of promotion/recruitment, pre-departure orientation, and re-entry programming.
