SDG Student Ambassadors gain a strong understanding of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), deepen their knowledge of environmental and social responsibility, design and create the structure of the SDG Student Ambassador Program, and enhance their professional development skills.

Co-sponsored by the Institute for Business Ethics and Sustainability (IBES) and the Office of Global-Local Affairs (GLA), this program:

  • Educates students on the SDGs and their significance in the global community.
  • Develops programming and events to promote the SDGs within the university community and beyond.
  • Enhances SDG knowledge in the community through presentations in classes, student housing and Registered Student Organizations (RSO) meetings.
  • Develops strong leadership, organizational and communication skills.
  • Provides experience in project management/development and event planning.

Applications for spring 2023 have closed.

  • This program is open to all LMU undergraduate students. Ideally, SDG Student Ambassadors will reflect the diversity of majors and demographics across schools/colleges. Ambassadors must maintain a 3.0 GPA or higher and have an interest in engaging with the SDGs.

  • This is a $2,000 professional development opportunity for the spring 2023 semester that will consist of working 5 hours per week with compensation at $16.04 per hour, with 3 additional $400 stipends provided upon completion of each of the 3 projects/deliverables.

    Ambassadors must be able to work 50 hours during the first 10-12 weeks of the spring semester and commit to 8 hours of SDG training.

  • With faculty partners, ambassadors will co-create a student-led SDG program to:

    1. Design innovative ways to promote the SDGs at LMU.
    2. Evaluate global networks to build effective global collaboration on the SDGs.
    3. Design an SDG campus event and present the SDG Ambassador Program design to a panel of key stakeholders.
