Global Ambassadors Mission

We believe diverse UW Tacoma students possess the power to create meaningful interpersonal, community and global connections that build positive social change. In this program, domestic and international student members will engage in a yearlong 'social group’ where together we explore community issues through dialogue and service.

The Global Ambassadors Program seeks to create globally minded membersfrom the standpoint of cultural humility and through a sincere connection between our local and global communities. The program reflects UWT’s urban serving mission through dedicated work in developing members' interest and understanding of social justice issues while providing real ways in which members are encouraged to be involved on our campus and in our community.
