“We are asking the Global Ambassadors to get the message out about this university and its accomplishments, and to help us wrestle with this vision of becoming a global university.”

-Chancellor Phil DiStefano

Global Ambassadors are a network of internationally engaged alumni and friends of CU. Their purpose is to collaborate globally, connecting our greater CU Boulder community by sharing and matching core competencies with the needs of the world. Their vision is for CU Boulder to be a leader in providing global education opportunities for all students. Global ambassadors:

  • Leverage their professional network to open doors of businesses or other organizations for faculty projects and group visits related to student global experiences.
  • Leverage their personal and professional network to promote CU and boost CU’s student recruiting efforts in their area.
  • Share their expertise as hosts and/or speakers for student groups visiting their area and/or speak-in/out of classes via technology.
  • Secure internship opportunities for CU’s student global internship program and/or mentor students seeking career opportunities or seeking to live in their area.
  • Host CU events in their area to gather alumni and/or when students and faculty visit.
  • Are part of the Forever Buffs Network, an online community where Buffs can grow their career and professional networks, help other Buffs through career advice and mentorship, and reconnect with old classmates from CU no matter where they now roam.
