Below are just a few examples of how you can stay involved. If you have other suggestions ideas that you feel would be beneficial to returning study abroad participants, please feel free to be in touch with us.
Join the Study Abroad Ambassador Program
If you are eager to talk to other Temple students about your experiences overseas and hope to encourage more Temple students to study abroad, we have the perfect opportunity for you! We're looking for students with excellent communication, presentation, and creative skills, as well as enthusiasm for study abroad, to join our Study Abroad Ambassadors program. Becoming an Ambassador is a great way to continue processing the lessons you learned abroad and build your resume.
Study Abroad Ambassadors commit to volunteering at 2 events per semester and serving as a contact for students. Additionally, participation in the Study Abroad Ambassador training is required.
Ambassador Applications open around May and are due every year in July.
Volunteer at Events
Share your experiences with other students at Temple! Student volunteers agree to volunteer at study abroad events . Look for emails from the Education Abroad office about upcoming events.
Participate in the Global Temple Conference
Consider submitting a proposal for the Global Temple Conference! Held every other year, this day-long symposium features student, staff and faculty research, plus a variety of programs and creative ventures. We welcome proposals for various formats-–papers, panel discussions, posters, films, performances, & exhibits—organized broadly around four pillars of university excellence: scholarship, teaching, creativity, and service. Returned students are encouraged to organize their own panels and submit original work for presentation.
Stay tuned for announcements about upcoming conferences.
Contribute Alumni Stories
We are looking for alumni to share how their experiences abroad shaped their future path. Did your study abroad journey alter your future plans or help you prepare for your career? If you are interested in sharing your story, please send your information to [click-for-email]. Be sure to include your name, program, the semester in which you studied abroad, and we'll be in touch.
