The College of the Redwoods Multicultural and Equity Center Student Ambassador Program provides a unique opportunity for students to take an active role on campus by discussing their personal narratives in correlation with diversity related topics.
The Student Ambassadors work toward changing perspectives and breaking down stereotypes, while promoting the genuine celebration of differences and encouraging multicultural awareness across cultures and in everyday settings. Ambassadors are responsible for facilitating diverse conversations through presentations and open discussions in classrooms. Their presentations are free and available to instructors on campus. Ambassadors are some of our most involved students and become part of a close-knit, diverse, and vibrant group.
Presentation topics include immigration, understanding differing cultures and culture shocks, LGBT experiences, religion, allyship, physical, mental and emotional abuse, education, challenges facing minority groups, family dynamics, socioeconomic status, mental health, first generation college student experiences, and the challenges that come with growing up in a single parent household
