Faculty Ambassador Program

About the program

The College of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies (CGPS) Faculty Ambassador Program is designed to enable the CGPS to more effectively connect faculty to prospective graduate students during key activities that support the promotion of graduate studies.  Events could include delegation visits with Student Recruitment staff, CALDO missions throughout Latin America, and China Scholarship Council Master and Ph.D. Fairs.

As part of this program, faculty who travel on these recruitment opportunities are provided with a toolkit and a brief orientation to assist them in promoting the University as a whole to prospective graduate students and institutional partners.

There is a maximum of a $1000 travel award available to approved Faculty Ambassadors to off-set the flight ticket and other costs for the trip.


Those wishing to act as a Faculty Ambassador on behalf of the CGPS must submit a Faculty Ambassador Registration form before the trip to receive pre-approval for the travel award.

If your registration is approved, you will receive an email notification, along with a request to include this as part of your CONCUR authority to travel request. Included in that email will be the appropriate CFOAPAL and maximum allowable expense, as well as the name of the fund manager that will need to be included as a secondary approver on your CONCUR request.

Reimbursement claim

At the conclusion of the trip, to submit a claim for reimbursement of expenses under the terms of the Faculty Ambassador Program you must:

  1. Submit a Faculty Ambassador Trip Report. This report must include an overview of the activities undertaken on behalf of the CGPS and identification of any follow-up actions required by CGPS staff.
  2. Return your Faculty Ambassador tool kit, any leftover materials, and your list of contacts names and email addresses for follow-up by CGPS staff;
  3. Complete your expense claim on CONCUR, listing the CGPS Fund Manager as Secondary Approver as instructed.

Additional opportunities

In addition, from time to time the CGPS will provide faculty with the opportunity to become further engaged in the graduate student recruitment process. This could include:

  • a faculty ambassador accompanying CGPS staff on a recruitment trip
  • a faculty ambassador conducting a CGPS visit as part of his/her own trip, or visiting a nearby institution on behalf of the CGPS in addition to a faculty member’s previously arranged trip. 

All costs incurred as a result of faculty travel on behalf of the CGPS will be reimbursed under a separate arrangement.
