Rutgers Centers for Global Advancement and International Affairs


Faculty and Staff Ambassadors Program

The GAIA Centers piloted the Faculty and Staff Ambassadors Program in summer 2012 to support Rutgers’ international connections. The program, designed to complement existing faculty and staff international travel plans, makes it possible for selected faculty and staff to host or attend events during their international travels on behalf of the university. These activities can include visiting educational institutions, nongovernmental organizations, and other related international organizations or hosting alumni events.

These visits allow faculty and staff to represent the university and strengthen existing partnerships, deepen alumni relationships, and/or expand opportunities to generate additional research collaboration and external funding. To date, more than 100 participants from all campuses have traveled to countries including Argentina, Cuba, the Czech Republic, Uganda and many others. The program is currently accepting applications.
