Ambassadors are a central part of the PAL program. They serve as mentors to students transitioning into arts, and are the most visible members of the program assisting with faculty and university events such as orientation and open day.
They are called upon to draw on their own life skills and experiences in the mentoring of transition year students who may come from a diversity of backgrounds. Ambassadors are relied upon for their interpersonal skills as well as their understanding of university life.
Your contribution will be recognised by enrolment in our leadership unit, CC-ENP1008 Peer Ambassador Leadership Mentoring Program. Minimum criteria must be met.
