Augustana Cultural Exchange (ACE) Ambassador Program
Sponsored by: International Programs Office
The Augustana Cultural Exchange (ACE) program is an exciting leadership opportunity for students interested in developing intercultural skills and establishing friendships with international students. The program is designed to help international students transition to the United States and to facilitate meaningful, intercultural relationships. Ambassadors play an essential role in the successful integration of new international students at Augustana.
Ambassadors in the ACE program work in groups. Leadership teams will include at least one U.S. student and one returning international student who will lead 7-8 new international students as they adjust to life at Augustana and the United States. Ambassadors assist with a 5-day orientation program — answering questions about culture, academics and resources and introducing international students to new people, places, customs, and procedures at Augustana. Ambassadors provide leadership for international programs on campus and are encouraged to join the Augustana International Club (AIC).
