Being an Honors Ambassador is a way to share your enthusiasm for the Honors Program by acting as a representative of the program, specifically at recruitment events. Ambassadors participate at Weekend Open House or Welcome Day Discussion Panels, typically once per semester. They also may meet with prospective students at the Honors Office or assist with Honors Welcome Week. Ambassadors attend monthly planning meetings during the Fall and Spring semesters.
Students applying be outgoing, friendly, comfortable speaking in front of large groups, and capable of representing the Honors Program positively while answering a range of questions about Program and the university-at-large. Students interested in becoming Honors Ambassadors must submit their application by March TBA, 2017. If you have any questions, please contact Katie Almanzan.
Honors Mentors are upper-class Honors students that assist in the teaching and administration of Honors Discovery (HONR 1102), a course which all First-Year Honors students are required to take. It is a great opportunity to have a hands-on leadership experience and interact with the first-year Honors students.
Mentors must be available in the fall on Mondays, Tuesdays or Thursdays between 4:35pm-5:40pm. All mentors must participate in late spring and early fall training. Mentors must be comfortable leading a bi-weekly class discussion with a co-mentor and facilitating a “walk-about” in the larger Boston community.
If you have any questions, please contact Colleen Cronin to learn more about the opportunity.
To complement our leadership opportunities, the Honors Program offers leadership training programming for First-Year and Second-Year students during the academic year. These programs explore leadership theory and work with students to help them discover and understand their own respective style of leadership. The Second-Year Leadership Institute is held each Fall, while the First-Year Leadership Retreat is offered each Spring.
During the Fall 2016 semester, the Second-Year Leadership Institute will held on September 30-October 1st. Second-Year Honors students may expect a variety of leadership training exercises, including an afternoon ropes course session. Those interested in attending should submit an application.
