Become a Global Partner

UM Global Partners is a service program to provide a personal UM friend to help new international students during their first few months on campus.  The University of Montana-Missoula enrolls about 600 international students and scholars from an average of 76 countries every year.  During their first semester here, international students often feel loneliness, culture shock, and stress.  As an experienced UM student, you can volunteer to ease their cultural adjustment by being a Global Partner to one newly arrived international student!

Apply for an Internship

Global Engagement hires interns each semester for various positions.  We post positions at the end of each semester for the upcoming semester, and they can be found on Handshake through Internship Services.  

There is a list of our current available internships on our Global Engagement Office Internship page


Become a Education Abroad Ambassador

Education abroad ambassadors help promote study abroad to their fellow UM students on a volunteer basis. Education abroad ambassadors should be students who have returned to UM following a period of time abroad and are willing to talk to other students about their experiences. There is no commitment and students can volunteer as much or as little as they want. Interested students should contact rachel.dierken@mso.umt.edu .

Engage with Speakers' Bureau

International Students and Scholars coordinates the Speakers’ Bureau Program, through which international students are able to interact with the University of Montana and larger Missoula Community. If you would like to invite International students to give talks on a variety of topics related to their home country, or coordinate with an International student on campus, Speakers’ Bureau is for you!

Most students are happy to share what they love most about their homelands and the audience groups are always very excited to meet students and learn about other countries around the world.
