Student Ambassadors and Multicultural Recruiter-Ambassadors (MCRs)
The Ambassador Program is the University of Oregon's primary student recruitment team. The program’s staff of current students recruits prospective students through campus tours, open house events, phone calls, and off-site fairs and receptions. Often serving as the first contact prospective students have with the UO, Ambassadors act as the UO’s public face, representing what it means to be a Duck to a large and varied audience.
Mid-year hiring has concluded, however the application remains open until the next hiring period. Feel free to fill out an application anytime, but note the next hiring period will not be until a later date.
Ambassadors will staff the Ford Alumni Information Desk, give campus tours to visitors, call admitted students and act as a student representative at off-site recruitment events when needed. Duties also include asking and answering questions, referring questions to appropriate departments, working Duck Preview and Duck Days events, ensuring the accuracy of information given, and other duties as assigned. Our program is in the process of constant change and growth. Ambassadors are expected to be comfortable with change. Hours and shifts will vary based on need and your class schedule.
While maintaining the same workload as all ambassadors, multicultural recruiter-ambassadors specifically focus their recruitment efforts on underrepresented students, especially in their close work and presentation of Connections open house events. These students have an in-depth knowledge of multicultural recruitment issues and a broad base of involvement with campus services and resources related to cultural diversity.
