Campus Ambassadors Program
The GSA ESPO Campus Ambassadors Program is a vital networking tool linking students with an interest in gerontology on campuses all over the country and abroad.
Its goal at GSA is to promote an organization based around the field of aging. Campus Ambassadors are encouraged to become actively involved in promoting opportunities in the field of aging on their campuses. There are lots of ways to get the word out about aging! Campus Ambassadors should:
- Generate awareness of GSA and ESPO on their local campuses
- Promote abstract submission for and participation in the GSA Annual Scientific Meeting
- Promote and organize participation in "Careers in Aging Week" (www.careersinaging.com)
- Organize other events on their campuses throughout the year such as: guest speakers, meetings, panel presentations, networking receptions; and discussion sessions on topics related to gerontological research, policy, practice, careers, and student topics such as internships, etc.
A Campus Ambassador may decide to develop a local program in one of the following ways:
- Create or work with an existing campus gerontology student organization
- Work with an existing local branch of Sigma Phi Omega (SPO)
- Recruit a Co-Ambassador
If you are already a member of a campus gerontology student organization or a local branch of SPO, you can also become a Campus Ambassador.
GSA is currently seeking applications for Campus Ambassadors positions. Please use the Contact Us form if you have any questions or would like more information.
