Experience Montclair Ambassador

Experience Montclair (EM) is a University-wide initiative designed to provide activities, events and workshops to help students stimulate intellectual curiosity and career readiness through academic and co-curricular programming. This initiative promotes active student engagement starting in the very first semester. As students begin their transition to college life they will be presented with opportunities to explore areas of personal and professional interest in order to gain necessary skills for future employment and/or graduate study. By employing a competency-based approach, student engagement can be translated into competencies to make sense for students, administrators, family members and potential employers. Examples of competencies will include, but are not limited to the following:

Academic Engagement, Leadership Development, Career Development/Preparation, Fiscal Literacy, Civic and Community Engagement and Red Hawk Pride to name a few.

Experience Montclair Ambassadors are undergraduate students who assist in organizing, promoting and attending Experience Montclair events.  With the guidance of a professional staff member, Ambassadors also present workshops on Fiscal Literacy topics such as Credit, Loans, Taxes, etc. Extensive training will be provided and is required before the start of every semester.
