Student Ambassadors

Student Ambassadors is a cohorted program which gathers 12 students from each class of sophomores, juniors, and seniors.

Ambassadors work closely with the Dean’s Office and Student Affairs to engage with VIP guests, develop leadership skills, and serve as ambassadors to the NU-Q student experience. Through service to the institution, Student Ambassadors provide personalized interaction with the NU-Q community, allowing them to build valuable relationships with faculty, administrators, trustees, guests, and students of the university. The program was established to provide a group of NU-Q students with the skills and training necessary to help represent the university at events and activities both on campus and elsewhere.

Each year the newest group of Student Ambassadors travel to Northwestern’s home campus in Evanston, Illinois, USA—just outside of Chicago. While there, the ambassadors attend classes and campus activities, meet peers and community members from across the globe, and visit with renowned studios and publication companies in the Chicago area. These exchanges also allow students to participate in many Northwestern traditions.

Who is eligible?

  • Must be a currently enrolled, degree-seeking student in their second-year at NU-Q
  • Must be in good academic standing (not on academic probation or have committed academic dishonesty) with no non-academic disciplinary sanctions on record
  • Must be an involved and engaged member of the NU-Q/Education City community

When is it?

  • The Student Ambassadors experience is a three-year commitment beginning the fall semester of your sophomore year. Each semester students are required to volunteer for 2 engagement opportunities ranging from lunches and tours with VIP guests to volunteering to help with graduation and the EC Career Fair.
  • The Evanston Ambassadors Experience Trip occurs annually for the newest class of Student Ambassadors for one week. 


Student Ambassador applications will open in the Fall semester. Please direct any questions to Dina Al-Abdi at
