International Ambassador Program

International Ambassadors (IAs) are a select group of undergraduate students, both international and American, who serve as ISSA's student welcome and leadership team. International Ambassadors connect with students before they arrive on campus, welcome them in their first few days on campus, and provide an important touchpoint for new undergraduates through their first few months at Notre Dame. They also help shape programming that encourages relationship building and elevates the success of internationalization efforts on campus.
