Ambassador Program

The Goldfarb School of Nursing at Barnes-Jewish College Ambassador Program is the premier student leadership opportunity within the College. Ambassadors serve the important needs of the College and function in a public relations role as selected representatives of the College. Ambassadors are positive, enthusiastic, and well-informed students representing each Goldfarb program of study.


The purpose of this program is to form a group of high caliber student representatives who are officially designated and supported by the College. Each program of study has representation in the program. Ambassadors will promote Goldfarb School of Nursing at Barnes-Jewish College programs and services, participate in events and activities, and serve as student representatives who link incoming students with the College and support our current student body. A stipend of $500 per term will be paid to ambassadors who meet participation criteria.
