Interested in becoming an International Programs Student Ambassador?

If you have studied abroad on any of the business programs (UF in Beijing, UF in London, UF in Madrid, UF in Dublin, 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. You do not have to be a business major or minor to serve as an ambassador.

The International Programs Student Ambassadors is a group of study abroad participants who assist the Heavener 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. Members are also encouraged through various activities to continue developing their intercultural awareness and personal growth which began when during their time abroad.

The application for the IPSA program is due along with a resume the first week of each semester. After the initial review of applications, a selection of candidates will be invited to participate in a group interview. Consider joining this exciting and vital student group and continue your international affiliations after returning to campus. For any questions or further details, email Joe Rojo (joe.rojo at
