Are you interested in using your study abroad experience to support the work of the CGE? Work as a Programming Assistant or volunteer as a Global Ambassador and help other students as they prepare to embark on their own study abroad journeys. Or, serve as a Global Buddy to help a visiting international exchange student studying at HWS.

Programming Assistants

As a CGE Programming Assistant, you’ll work with the staff of the Center for Global Education on a variety of tasks and projects. You will serve as a CGE representative at campus events and will help in preparing other students for their own impactful abroad experiences. This is a paid position and we solicit applications each spring semester for the following year.

Global Ambassadors

Students abroad in South Africa
Students who have participated in HWS semester-long study abroad programs may support the work of the CGE as Global Ambassadors. GA’s serve as peer mentors, representing the programs they participated in to help recruit and prepare students to go abroad. In addition to addressing program-and location-specific questions, GA’s help to provide insight into the study abroad experience generally. This is a volunteer position that will enable you to continue your global journey while building your resume.


Global Buddies

HWS hosts a number of international students from around the world who choose to study at HWS. “Global Buddies” is a program that pairs returned HWS study abroad students with incoming international students. HWS buddies are asked to serve as a cultural and campus resource for their buddy and to participate in one mutually agreed activity per month on campus or in the area to help the international student meet Americans and learn about our community. At the beginning of each semester, the CGE will email all returnees to solicit interest in serving as a Global Buddy.
