Global Ambassadors (GA) are an organized and mobilized group fo GPP alumni who work closely with the Global Projects Program in the IGSD to promote off-campus opportunities to the WPI community. Student volunteers act as a resource for students, alumni, and parents who are interested in learning about off-campus opportunities as well as to help returned students unpack their off-campus experiences upon returning so that students understand the added value of off-campus programs to their academic and professional lives.
