Do you have insights and ideas about how the LSA Opportunity Hub can effectively work with you and other LSA students?
Student Advisory Team (SAT) ambassadors help shape the Hub’s programs, services, and marketing while developing your professional skills. SAT is a group of LSA undergraduate students who provide timely, specific, and honest feedback to Hub staff that will impact the rest of the college’s 18,000-plus students.
Feedback and input can be given through in-person or virtual activities and through serving as an ambassador for Hub related events. Involvement as a SAT ambassador includes access to engage in specialized professional development and exclusive engagement opportunities.
What are the benefits of serving as a SAT Ambassador?
By participating, you will:
Build meaningful connections with fellow LSA students across departments and be part of an integrated community
Take part in exclusive opportunities to connect and engage with LSA alums and employer partners
Cultivate relationships with seasoned master’s-level coaches for always-on career support and advice
Gain the inside scoop on Hub programs, events, and initiatives
Practice leadership by promoting and representing the Hub to the broader LSA ecosystem
- Advocate for LSA students by providing insightful feedback that influences the planning and implementation of Hub programs
- Get free Hub gear and swag! (phone accessories, hats, water bottles, t-shirts, and more!)
What is the time commitment?
To be considered an active participant, a SAT ambassador is required to engage in activities and are awarded points, in order to meet a particular point value per semester. We will have both in-person and virtual activities; you can sign up for activities based on your availability.
We ask that ambassadors commit to both Fall 2020 and Winter 2021 semesters. If you plan to graduate in December 2020, you are eligible to apply and participate for fall semester only.
Additionally, SAT ambassadors are required to attend monthly team meetings to learn about new events and initiatives at the Hub in order to promote Hub resources and activities, provide insight, and participate in exclusive opportunities with Hub staff, LSA alums and employers.
Examples of past activities include:
Focus groups about building online resume tools
Feedback session about how to improve Hub student communications
Flyering and postering on the Diag to promote a Hub event
Survey about industry interests for internships
Survey feedback on the naming of a new mentorship tool
Survey input about a new virtual resume tool that the Hub is piloting
Who is eligible?
Any LSA undergraduate student who does not intend to transfer out of LSA through May 2020.
