Being an IEA is an exciting opportunity that can empower you to build on your global experience and help your fellow students to pursue international experiences.  All ambassadors are expected to commit for one academic year, attend one training meeting at the beginning of each semester, and participate in regular weekly meetings to plan and discuss responsibilities.
