LSP Ambassador Positions
The Latina/o Studies Program is a premier academic and professional development initiative at UNC. The first of its kind in the southeast, the LSP has become the model and standard for programs like it across the US. Known for the LTNO minor, our research symposia, creative writer and scholar talks, and community engagement events, including open houses and free movie screenings, the LSP provides multiple avenues for critical engagement with Latinx studies in the classroom, on campus, and beyond. Students involved with the program or minoring in LTNO are encouraged to apply for our ambassador program.
Ambassadors have the distinct honor of representing the LSP around campus. Ambassadors work with the LSP team to promote all affiliated events and courses by sharing all LSP events with their peers, attending as many events as possible, and making class visits for the program. The short presentation can be completed in person or over Zoom and would describe the history of the program, the nature of our events, what types of classes the program offers, any salient experiences in an LTNO class or at an event. Presentations provide students with information on how to apply for the minor.
Any interested undergraduates are welcome to apply! You do not need to minor in LTNO to qualify, however, preference will be given to those who are currently enrolled in the minor.
*Please note: this is a volunteer-based position. LSP Ambassadors do not receive compensation but do receive long-term professionalization support.
