Celebrating and Recognizing the 2016-2017 TPE Ambassadors
Ambassadors are current graduate students serving as a liaison between TPE and the college or university that they are attending. Being an Ambassador is a great way to serve other graduate students in your home institution and to provide information and opportunities to prepare for the job search process. Click here to meet our 2016-2017 Ambassadors.
Philosophy of the TPE Ambassador Position
The Ambassadors will be working with The Placement Exchange in a variety of ways. Primarily, the Ambassadors will serve as the main communication conduit on campuses with their peers and faculty. They will be given the most up-to-date information about all of the positions available within Student Affairs on the TPE job board and at TPE Onsite event so that they can convey this information back to their campuses, particularly to their peers who are candidates. In addition, Ambassadors will be responsible for planning at least three programs on their campus engaging their community with the TPE experience.
Another great opportunity that will only be made available to the TPE Ambassadors is the potential to serve as a TPE Intern at the TPE Onsite event in San Antonio, Texas. Interns will be selected from the TPE Ambassadors. All of the TPE Interns will receive lodging during TPE Onsite, along with funding to cover travel and some meal costs.
