Ambassadors will be required to attend a meeting with the Ambassador Coordinator, every other week (M-F, 10am – 5pm) during the spring semester in the Women's & Gender Studies Office in Doak Hall 123. We will work with your class and extracurricular schedule in order for you to fulfill the meeting requirements. During this time you will be working on various projects related to the office's mission, creating promotional materials, and developing outreach plans to increase the visibility of Women's and Gender Studies and the enrollment of minors.
