Endicott College offers many on campus opportunities for students to develop greater understanding of other cultures. These opportunities afford Endicott students a chance to become familiar with other cultures prior to a study abroad experience, or provide an alternative to study abroad. Explore the opportunities we have on campus!
The Office of International Education organizes and co-sponsors numerous events during the academic year. Please check the campus Events Calendar regularly for new activities.
Programs for Students
International opportunities for students include a variety of clubs, organizations and leadership programs that can help to build an international, multi-cultural skill set in order to be successful in today's global society.
The Intercultural Club is a student group committed to promoting intercultural understanding at Endicott College. The club plans and participates in numerous cultural activities each year, both on and off campus. Activities include international dinners and film nights, charity events for international causes, and sponsoring international and cultural performances and programs on campus. Each semester the club holds a Global Village event, showcasing the variety of cultures on campus. This group is open to all Endicott students.
Global Ambassador Program
The Global Ambassadors (GAs) typically are upperclassmen who are also international students or are domestic students who have returned from a study abroad experience. GAs are looking to share their experiences with the Endicott community and aid the Office of International Education in their mission to internationalize the Endicott College community. The GAs have two missions:
Mentor new international students: Each new international student is assigned a Global Ambassador (GA) upon their arrival to help them adjust to the campus and to the US. The GAs will bring the new students to shop for any necessities, share meals together, and check in during the semester to make sure that everything is going well. GAs are asked to plan outings for the newly arrived students to help them to get to know the area. Of course, the GAs are always available for questions and concerns, any day!
Promote Study Abroad: The Global Ambassadors' other mission is to raise awareness of the benefits of studying abroad. GAs promote the many programs offered by Endicott College through marketing initiatives, classroom visits, information sessions, social media outreach, and other publications.
Students can apply to be a Global Ambassador each April for the following academic year.
