Support SPAA Ambassadors this Rutgers Giving Day on June 17, 2020

#RUGivingDay #RutgersSPAA #Ambassadors4SPAA #SPAAisPublicService

Wednesday, June 17, 2020 marks the fifth annual Rutgers Giving Day

On Rutgers Giving Day, SPAA alumni, students, faculty, staff, and friends join together in a 24-hour fundraising event to give back to programs that empower students to make change in the world.

Support the Public and Nonprofit Leaders of Tomorrow

This Giving Day, your support of the SPAA Student Ambassador Program will allow students to pursue hands-on leadership opportunities and professional development activities that equip them with the knowledge and skills to successfully lead public and nonprofit organizations.

The SPAA Student Ambassador Program is a multi-level leadership opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students who subscribe to the values of competence, diversity, knowledge, ethics, and service. SPAA Ambassadors represent the School of Public Affairs and Administration in a variety of activities – including admissions, public engagement, and marketing initiatives – and participate in professional development opportunities.
