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.
We are currently seeking a faculty leader for the Global Engagement Academic Residential Community and Student Envoy Program in preparation for World Athletics Championships Oregon22.
The Lead Faculty for the Envoy program should have:
- Background and/or expertise in the curriculum topics and in student leadership work.
- Track record of entrepreneurial, fast, and creative work.
- Ability to collaborate with and mobilize colleagues from many units across campus.
- Flexibility and passion for global engagement and athletics.
