International Reach Ambassadors

Become a Student Ambassador!

Middle East Student Ambassador

The MESP is thrilled to be partnering with International Reach: A Cross-Cultural Speakers Program to recruit students interested in becoming International Reach Ambassadors. This is a great opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students to share the mission of the MESP and promote Middle Eastern languages, cultures, history and geopolitical issues, and to encourage cross-cultural understanding with and among the diverse communities and groups of the region.

If you are pursuing Middle East studies in any field or have lived in the Middle East, and have pertinent knowledge about the wider region, you can join our team! You will be working closely with the MESP director and the coordinators at International Reach to represent the Middle East in venues on campus and beyond, such as elementary, middle and high schools in Madison, as well as local and community organizations. By becoming a International Reach Ambassador, you will gain public-speaking and communication skills to prepare you for future careers in education, public policies, international relations, NGOs, businesses, and much more.
