International Agriculture Ambassadors

​An International Agriculture Ambassador represents International Programs in Agriculture and is an advocate for study abroad. The main responsibilities for ambassadors are to assist with incoming international exchange students, promote study abroad, assist with international visitors, give presentations, and increase global awareness.


The application to be an International Ag Ambassador for the 2018-19 academic year will be available in February. This PDF presentation explains more information about the ambassador program.
