±«²Ô¾±²ú³Ü»å»å²âÌýis a student chatÂ platform embedded on the ÇïÏ¼Â×Àí International website that connects current Douglas international studentsÂ to prospective international students. There's nothing like talking to a peer about their college experiences!
As a DCI Ambassador, you will represent ÇïÏ¼Â×Àí by interacting with prospective students and their families to help them learn aboutÂ the college and provide guidance regarding joining Douglas.Â Â
A DCI Ambassador would be required toÂ sign up and create aÂ ±«²Ô¾±²ú³Ü»å»å²âÌýaccount whenÂ joining theÂ DCI AmbassadorÂ program. Training on how to use the ±«²Ô¾±²ú³Ü»å»å²âÌýplatform will be provided as part of your onboarding process to the program.Â Â
±«²Ô¾±²ú³Ü»å»å²âÌýappears as a bubble chat function on the ÇïÏ¼Â×Àí InternationalÂ page for prospective international students to join, ask questions and directly chat with a DCI Ambassador about their Douglas experience.
Prospective international students will be able toÂ view the DCI Ambassadorâ€™s profile on ÇïÏ¼Â×Àíâ€™s website, and choose to chat with an ambassador based on the program of choice, shared interest, languages, etc.Â
Prospective international students will also be required to sign up forÂ ±«²Ô¾±²ú³Ü»å»å²âÌýbefore chatting with an ambassador.
Interacting with a ÇïÏ¼Â×ÀíÂ staff member can be overwhelming to some prospective students. Chatting with a current international student may give them the confidence andÂ guidanceÂ needed to make an informed decision and smooth transition into college life.
Unibuddy is similar to a social network which gives both DCI Ambassadors and prospective studentsÂ lots of flexibility and isÂ also available as a mobile app. DCI Ambassadors can log in and reply to inquiries on their mobile device anywhere with Internet access. Â
You willÂ mostly work onlineÂ and from anywhere you likeÂ as long asÂ you have access to internet.Â In-personÂ recruitment, DCI InternationalÂ events and trainingÂ sessionsÂ may occasionally be required.
The program is free of charge for both DCI Ambassadors and prospective international students.
Sign-up sheets will be available for events in advance, and a DCI Ambassador can sign up on first come first served basis. The number of available slotsÂ for volunteers will be indicated on the sign-up sheet.Â Â
For general department or another events such as Orientation,Â International Days, etc.,Â you will receive notifications from theÂ programÂ coordinators.Â
This program is an ongoing program. However, we encourage volunteers to stay with us for at least one semester.
A DCI Ambassador is a volunteer position. At the end of your volunteer term, you may have a chance to obtain a Certificate of Participation, a Reference Letter and other perks, depending on your level of engagement
