Office of Study Abroad and Study Away Programs

Study Abroad Program Ambassadors

The students listed below have returned from a study abroad program, and they play an important leadership role for the study abroad students at Clark.  Study Abroad Ambassadors are returned Clarkies who serve as peer advisors for prospective study abroad students, as well as peer leaders for fellow returned students. As ambassadors for prospective students, they help with information sessions, provide general advising, and advocate for study abroad. As ambassadors for fellow returned students, they help connect returned Clarkies together and share experiences. Feel free to email them if you have questions about their specific program. Please contact the Study Abroad staff about specific policies and administrative matters related to Clark University and studying abroad.

Please contact the Study Abroad Office if you are interested in becoming an Ambassador.
