International Programs Student Ambassadors

The Heavener School of Business International Programs Student Ambassadors (IPSA) are undergraduates who have studied abroad and now wish to inform, encourage, and inspire their peers to have their own exciting and memorable experience abroad. These students volunteer to assist the International Programs staff to educate and facilitate students to study abroad.

The ambassadors perform a range of advising and promotional activities, such as:

  • Guide students as they research study abroad options
  • Present study abroad information and share their experiences abroad with other students
  • Conduct information sessions for prospective study abroad participants
  • Assist with international education fairs, pre-departure orientations, and other events
  • Participate by giving presentations in Warrington Welcome classes, in residence halls and at student organizations
  • We encourage students to email an ambassador if they have questions or seek advise about study abroad.

Interested in becoming an ambassador?

If you have studied abroad on any of the business sponsored programs (UF in London, UF in Madrid, UF in Paris or UF in Rome) or on one of the 30+ business exchange programs through Heavener, you are eligible to apply for the International Programs Student Ambassador (IPSA) program. Even though the focus is on the business programs, you do not have to be a business major or minor to serve as an ambassador.

The International Programs Student Ambassadors is a small group of study abroad participants who assist the International Programs staff in the promotion of the School's study abroad and exchange programs. The Student Ambassador program provides students with the opportunity to enhance individual skills in interpersonal communication, public relations, advertising, public speaking, and writing.

The application for the IPSA position is due along with a resume to 133 Bryan Hall at the start of each semester. Consider joining this exciting and vital student group and continue your international affiliations after returning to campus. For any questions or further details, email Lucy DiLeo (lucy.dileo at
