Study Abroad Ambassadors

The Study Abroad Student Ambassador Group is a student organization jointly led by both the Study Abroad Office and the Study Abroad Ambassador Leadership Board. Alumni of affiliated UIC Study Abroad programs are invited to join the group and help promote study abroad opportunities for prospective students on campus. Members of the group will collaborate with the SAO to host outreach events, talk with prospective students, and share their stories on social media and blogs. It is a great organization to connect with other UIC Study Abroad Alumni who have had similar experiences and want to reminisce about what they learned and experienced. If you are interested in joining the Study Abroad Alumni community at UIC, consider being an Ambassador!
