The Global Ambassador program in the Center for Global Management provides opportunities to boost global mindset, 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 Jack H. Brown College (JHBC) collaboration, connectivity and leadership. Global ambassadors share cultures and values, while exchanging support, resources and opportunities as a CSUSB student through a multicultural lens or global mindset. 
Ambassadors might participate in the following ways:
  • Share their international knowledge, experiences, cultures and values to educate & engage the university community.
  • Introduce incoming international students to resources, people, departments and opportunities.
  • Collaborate on cultural events or celebrations.
  • Promote education abroad and other global opportunities.

"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 student events. I have gained communication skills through presentations. 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."
