Return to Campus

Public Health Ambassadors

To support important public health efforts on campus, Nazareth has created new student employment opportunities as public health ambassadors. Public health ambassadors will:

  • help with outreach and infection prevention services
  • help encourage safe social distancing practices
  • help organize health information and distribute it through tabling events, orientations, classroom presentations,  and other on-campus events

The student roles are temporary positions and will be focused on helping students during the first month back on campus to understand and comply with the new procedures and recommendations to stay safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Prior to students' return to campus, ambassadors will:

  • Create signs, Instagram posts, informational handouts about the new policies & practices on campus, and messages about the importance of being a good member of the Naz community and keeping each other safe.

During the first couple of weeks of classes, ambassadors will:

  • Be present to answer questions
  • Help hand out welcome packets (including masks and sanitation products)
  • Help direct traffic and remind students to wear masks, physically distance, etc.
  • Attend on-campus events to answer questions and share information

Timeline and next steps

  • Students: See the Student Employment page, which includes the link to Handshake — where you can view the job posting and apply for a public health ambassador role. The Student Employment page also has all the details about documentation you need to be hired for any jobs. 
  • Most of the public health ambassador positions will end at the end of August.
  • Public health ambassadors who are hired through the Partners for Serving program will continue on for the rest of the semester, and their focus will be on helping to keep motivation up to maintain safe practices (via social media campaigns, events, etc).

The public health ambassadors will be supervised by the Health and Counseling Center Outreach Coordinator John Rigney.
