The Cultural Ambassador program provides international students with an opportunity to educate UNC Charlotte students, faculty and staff about their culture and experience as international students in the US.

Presentations and Panels

Typical presentations are in a panel discussion format and may take place in a classroom or at a staff meeting. A member of ISSO staff facilitates and panels may consist of 3 to 6 international students. Questions will be prepared and students will answer questions based on their own experiences and perspectives. At the end of presentation, members of the audience may ask additional questions. To prepare for the presentation, several days before the event, panelists may meet with the discussion facilitator and review the questions.
