Study Abroad Representatives Program

Study Abroad Representatives are engineering students who have had an international experience and who wish to motivate other students to become more aware of the world. The representatives are engineering students who have completed at least one international experience, either study abroad or work abroad, and who want to help promote Global Engineering Engagement Programs. The representatives participate in several types of activities:

  • Office Hours in Kunkle Lounge: During fall and spring semesters, study abroad representatives hold office hours daily in their cubicle on the top floor of Kunkle Lounge (the corner of Hammond and Sackett Buildings) and are available as a resource to students who are curious about international opportunities in the College of Engineering.

  • Presentations: Representatives are available to give presentations in first-year seminars and other classes, as well as during information sessions or to student group meetings.
  • Events: During special events, such as the International Engineering Fair, the representatives are called upon to help promote the international opportunities for engineering students.
  • Consultation: The representatives provide valuable feedback about programs and new initiatives to be undertaken by Global Engineering Engagement Programs.
