My name is Logan Elliott, and I am a first-year graduate student at Missouri State University. I am studying Student Affairs in Higher Education, and I am a graduate assistant in the office of Orientation and Transition Programs. I am currently doing an internship with the Office of International Programs at Missouri State and wanted to share an exciting new opportunity for students to get engaged, become more culturally competent, and lead their peers in a new and exciting way.
The office of International Programs is currently hiring its new cohort of Global Mentors and Leaders (GLaM). The purpose of this opportunity is to create a global community where every Bear feels welcomed, valued, and engaged in all aspects of campus life. To achieve this purpose GLaM promotes engagement and interaction between citizens of all nations while also incorporating Missouri State University’s pillars of public affairs. Those chosen to be GLaMs will be trained on various aspects of immigration policy, and the international student experience, once GLaMs are trained they are paired with new incoming international students, not only to answer questions, and ensure they have a smooth transition into Missouri State, but also to be a friend, and aid them in a smooth transition into a completely new culture. This opportunity is open to both undergraduate and graduate students, so it is highly encouraged that all interested students apply.
Applications for this position will be open through February 24th at 11:59 pm. Interested students can apply online, or simply get more information by visiting International Programs through the official Missouri State University website. International Programs is excited to welcome their new cohort of Glammers, and hope to see lots of new faces!
