Opportunities to Participate with Global Engagement

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 300 international students and scholars 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!

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 currently available internships on our Global Engagement Office Internship page

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


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.
