Global Ambassador Program

The Clayton State Global Ambassador Program is an opportunity to share your global perspectives and study abroad stories, raise awareness and interest in study abroad programs, and inspire your peers and prospective Clayton State students to engage in diverse and inclusive cross-cultural learning experiences worldwide.

By serving as a Clayton State Global Ambassador, you will reflect on your time abroad in a meaningful way while developing concrete skills to articulate the value of your global experience in your personal, professional, and academic endeavors.
