Become a Student Success Ambassador
What does a Student Success Ambassador do?
Student Success Ambassadors serve as peer mentors in the Student Success Center and provide support to first-year students at the University of Louisville. Ambassadors help first-year students negotiate college transitions, form campus connections and facilitate student success by guiding, supporting and advising them throughout their first-year in college. Mentors make a difference in the lives of our first year students, and this is your opportunity to make a positive impact for new students.
Ambassadors also serve as undergraduate teaching assistants, supporting the instructors of academic orientation courses. The students enrolled in the course are the Ambassador's mentees for the duration of the year. Some Student Success Ambassadors also assist with registration during summer orientation sessions and during the fall and spring registration periods.
Ambassadors are paid for their classroom time and weekly office hours. In the fall semester this is about 4-6 hours peer week, and in the spring it is approximately 2-4 hours per week.
