Corcoran Ambassadors


The Corcoran Student Ambassador Program is an opportunity for current students to develop leadership skills, represent GW’s Corcoran programs, provide support for the Corcoran Recruitment and Admissions Office and make a positive impact on prospective students and families as they navigate the application process. Corcoran Ambassadors form a special group of arts and design leaders who are dedicated to fostering the GW Corcoran community through engagement within the university, the Corcoran School and beyond.


About the Program

Our Corcoran Ambassadors are student leaders who provide information about our programs, guide Discover the Arts campus tours, staff key admissions events in the fall and spring, and provide general mentoring and peer guidance to prospective students and families. Ambassador roles can be categorized into the following areas:

  1. Be a Corcoran Connector.
    Ambassadors interact with prospective students through phone calls, mail, email, social media, and campus visits. Ambassadors will provide a student perspective about the experience of being a student and a part of the community at GW’s Corcoran School of the Arts and Design.
  2. Lead Discover the Arts Campus Tours.
    Ambassadors have a significant role in helping students become familiar with Corcoran programs and the GW campus through Discover the Arts campus tours. The Ambassadors guide students and families to visit programs and introduce them to the services, resources and facilities that are key to the arts and design student experience at GW.
  3. Represent GW and Corcoran programs at Key Recruitment Events.
    Each ambassador will participate in activities to help prospective students learn about our programs and what it’s like to be a Corcoran student at GW. Activities include virtual and on-campus open houses and admitted student events.
  4. Plan Corcoran events and outreach for current students.
    Ambassadors work closely with Corcoran staff to plan events for current Corcoran students that build community across our programs. Additional outreach may include developing social media campaigns.
