The Arts Ambassador Program is designed to increase student awareness of the arts on campus and help incoming students get involved in the arts.
We’re looking for enthusiastic, outgoing, and friendly students who are living in a Residence Hall or living community (fraternity or sorority house, co-op, etc.) and have an interest in the arts that they want to share! Arts Ambassadors are unpaid volunteers who serve within their living communities as a resource for arts opportunities on campus. You'll help promote arts events and activities, and have a small programming budget to organize things like film screenings, craft nights, gallery walks to organize events or field trips for your fellow students. You'll attend monthly meetings and collaborate with other Arts Ambassadors to get the U of M community engaged in the arts!
Our monthly meetings are an important part of this program. All ambassadors are expected to attend every meeting throughout the semester. If you cannot be at every single session, please contact us to see if you should consider applying.
Meetings are scheduled on the first Wednesday of the month, from 6-8pm, except when that day falls during a holiday or break.
The application deadline for Winter 2015 is January 27. To apply, please click on the application link below and fill out the web form.
Applicants will be selected based on the information provided on the Arts Ambassador application. All applications must be submitted via the online form. The application is designed to better inform us about your personal background, experience, and interest in the Arts Ambassador program. If you have any questions about the application or selection process, please email Joe Levickas.
Arts Ambassadors are unpaid volunteers but will be rewarded with many great incentives such as free tickets and Ambassador-only events. Additionally, Arts Ambassadors will develop skills in leadership, communication, collaboration, and organization. Best of all, becoming an Arts Ambassador is a great way to meet new people and get connected to lots of different resources on campus.
