Global Ambassadors Program

The Global Ambassadors Program

About the Program

The Office of International Programs is sponsoring the Global Ambassadors Program (GAP) where domestic students are paired with international students to share cultural perspectives and ease international students’ transition into their lives here at Sam Houston State University. The Global Ambassadors Program will host several social events over the year to give students additional opportunities to interact and develop lasting friendships. Dates, times and locations are subject to change.

If you are interested in joining, turn in an application to Cassie Cure or Justin Ball (GAP advisors) in the Office of International Programs (Farrington 116)!
