Diversity Ambassadors – Now Hiring!

In the 2016 Climate Study and Listening Sessions, students made it clear that they really wanted more opportunities to talk about diversity with their peers. The Diversity Ambassadors initiative was created to meet this need. The Diversity Ambassadors are UMKC students trained in diversity peer education looking to work with student organizations to meet the needs of our community by holding diversity dialogue sessions.

We are now hiring for the position of Diversity Ambassador facilitators for the 2019-2020 school year!

The UMKC Division of Diversity and Inclusion, in partnership with the Division of Student Affairs, are seeking passionate and self-aware UMKC students who have a demonstrated commitment to social justice, diversity, and equity, to apply for the Diversity Ambassador Program!

Students chosen for this rewarding initiative will become trained facilitators of diversity peer education and intergroup dialogues. Each Ambassador will lead, support, and organize Diversity and Inclusion sessions and special events, with the opportunity to meet and collaborate with UMKC Staff, Faculty and Community Constituents.

The Diversity Ambassadors are always representing the Division of Diversity and Inclusion, and the UMKC campus as a whole. These students will gain valuable interpersonal communication, facilitator, and leadership skills, as well as the opportunity to build community and relationships across the UMKC community.

In the past year, Diversity Ambassadors have reached hundreds of students in our community. If you would like to join the team, click here to complete our application! bit.ly/DA1920App
