Multicultural Competence and Peer Education (MAP) Ambassadors

The Multicultural Competence and Peer Education (MAP) Ambassadors are a select group of students who educate the Georgia State University community in multicultural competence, allowing them to explore society through a world view.

MAP Ambassadors will guide the Georgia State community through the use of workshops, discussion forums and inclusive programming. MAP Ambassadors will also increase the deliverance of the Multicultural Center’s mission through their education and workshop efforts. Students will learn about their similarities and differences through peer to peer interaction.

Requirements

  • MAP Ambassadors must facilitate at least two programs per month. These can be done in conjunction with the Multicultural Center.
  • Must complete entire time as a University MAP Ambassador.
  • MAP Ambassadors should complete one program each semester in conjunction with another university department or a student organization.

Compensation

MAP Ambassadors are required to work 3 office hours a week, with a total of 12 hours per month. Students who are NOT work study qualified will be compensated $100 per month, not including December.

Students who are work study qualified and accept a work study position may still apply for a MAP Ambassador position. This position can serve as internship credit if approved by the respective academic department. Work study qualified students who are MAP Ambassadors may also use weekly hours as volunteer hours.

All students who successfully complete MAP Ambassador duties will be eligible for letters of recommendation and other leadership positions.
