Student Envoy Program

World Athletics Championships 2022

What is the Student Envoy Program?

In Summer 2022, the World Athletics Championships Oregon22 will take place at Hayward Field at the University of Oregon. Our community will welcome over 2,000 athletes from almost every country in the world.

As part of the championships, the Division of Global Engagement (DGE) is working with the Office of the President to launch a Student Envoy Program, which will train and supervise a team of UO students, supplemented with community members when possible, to serve as local hosts and cultural guides to visiting athletic federations.
