The Multicultural Center for Academic Excellence hosts a two-day Multicultural Kickoff (MKO), which helps incoming first-year students make a successful transition to college by building community and identifying academic and cultural supports on campus. The Multicultural Kickoff begins Tuesday, August 28 and concludes Wednesday, August 29 before Welcome Week begins.
We are looking for outgoing and enthusiastic current students to serve as MKO Ambassadors during the event. Ambassadors will work in pairs to lead a small group of first-year students throughout the event. Ambassadors should be knowledgeable about on-campus resources for multicultural students and have a cumulative GPA of at least 2.5. Upon completion of the MKO Ambassador program, students will receive a $200.00 stipend. Students are expected to attend an April information session, training sessions on Friday, August 24th and Monday, August 27th (including move-in), and must be present for the entire Multicultural Kickoff on Tuesday, August 28th and Wednesday, August 29th, 2012.
