Do you know a high school student interested in attending a Tulsa-area college or university?
The Tulsa Higher Education Consortium (THE Consortium) is looking for students who want to learn about college options, build their leadership skills, and expand their higher education connections.
THE Consortium is a collaboration of seven higher education institutions in the Tulsa-area, including Langston University, Northeastern State University, OSU-Tulsa, OU-Tulsa, Rogers State University, Tulsa Community College, and the University of Tulsa. Our mission is to support students on their pathways to degree completion in the Tulsa-area. To learn more about us, visit www.tulsahighered.com.
What is the Campus Ambassadors Program? The Campus Ambassadors Program is a PAID 6-month fellowship that will allow students to learn about college options in the Tulsa-area and share those opportunities with their peers.
What will Campus Ambassadors do? Ambassadors will have monthly sessions to learn about colleges and universities within the THE Consortium. Following these sessions, Ambassadors will brainstorm how to share the information that they have learned with their high school peers. By the end of the fellowship, Ambassadors will be experts on Tulsa’s higher education opportunities and will share their insights at a community event.
Who can apply? Sophomore, junior, and senior high school students from school districts in and around the Tulsa-area are invited to apply. Students should have interest in potentially attending college at one of the following institutions: Langston, NSU, OSU-Tulsa, OU-Tulsa, RSU, TCC, or TU. Applications are due November 1st.
Where and when will meetings take place? Meetings will be both in person and virtual. There will be an in person kick-off with monthly virtual (Zoom) sessions from November 2022 through April 2023 highlighting Tulsa-area higher education and workforce opportunities.
What will Campus Ambassadors get out of the experience? Serving as a Campus Ambassador will provide students with valuable skills including communication, leadership, and a deep understanding of higher education in Tulsa. In developing their plan for how they’ll communicate information to their peers, Ambassadors will have to think critically about the best way to communicate their message to different audiences.
Please share this opportunity with your networks- especially any sophomore, junior, or senior students that you know. If you have any questions, please email [email protected] or call THE Consortium office at 918-268-9069.
