Global Ambassador Program

 

The Global Ambassador program is a global leadership program in the Center for Global Management. It provides opportunities to spark global mindsets, raise cultural awareness,  develop meaningful relationships with peers and enhance global leadership skills. The program encourages students with international interests to volunteer their talents, creativity and time to increase JHBC collaboration, connectivity and leadership. Global ambassadors might participate in the following ways: 

  • Share their international knowledge, experiences, cultures and talents to engage the university community.
  • Introduce incoming Jack H. Brown College international students to resources, people, departments and opportunities.
  • Collaborate on cultural events or celebrations.
  • Promote study abroad and other global opportunities.

If you would like to have one of our ambassadors visit your class, club, organization or table at an upcoming event as part of an interactive session or share cultural experiences, please fill out our Global Diversity Ambassador Request Form today.

 

Join our team of Global Ambassadors. This is a rewarding opportunity to engage with International students and become a part of the CSUSB campus community.

"What I have gained being a Global Ambassador for CGM at CSUSB are quite a few things. I have learned the different customs in different cultures through participating in the Student event. I have gained communication skills through tabling and presentations for potential students. I have had the privilege to share my culture through the use of video as well as raise my culture awareness. Most importantly, I have felt that I am a part of something important that the university has to offer for us business students. We are the stepping stone to make a difference and acknowledge the student diversity."

I love to read and learn about new cultures. I find that keeping an open mind to learning the different perspectives of each culture is enriching. I love to travel and hope to travel the world one day, there is so much to see and explore out there and so many different ways to live!

I am pursuing my degree in Business Administration with a Marketing Concentration at California State University, San Bernardino. I am a wife, mother, full-time student, and part-time paraprofessional at the Veterans Success Center at CSUSB. I am proud to have accomplished many goals while attending the university, and being a part of the Global Ambassador team for the Center for Global Management at CSUSB. It has given me the opportunity to share my cultural background as well as experiences with other students on campus because networking is a major component at succeeding in school, careers, and in life. I represent the Chicano culture and exemplify what it is like to be a student of Hispanic decent at CSUSB. Si se puede!

I am proudly African, a dog lover, a traveller and fun loving personality. My curiosity has opened me to loads of new learning, culturally, intellectually and academically.

I made a decision to be a Global Ambassador because it affords me that opportunity to network, participate in fun events, learn new cultures and most importantly share my African heritage.  It has been an interesting journey being part of this diverse community.
