The Indigenous Academic Support Unit, Gurinbey, based at Charles Darwin University’s Casuarina campus, is set to launch its new and innovative Indigenous Student Ambassador Program (ISAP).
To be launched tomorrow, Wednesday 6 May, the program is a new concept designed by the Indigenous Academic Support Unit (IASU) to meet the growing demand for CDU Indigenous students to participate in promoting higher education throughout the wider community.
Coordinator of the IASU, Roz Anderson said the program was a great opportunity for Indigenous students to become role models within the community.
“The program not only ensures that high-achieving Indigenous students are appropriately recognised for their contribution to the community and to the university, but it also provides them with the opportunity to undertake voluntary community work that will really enhance their CVs when it comes to applying for jobs,” Ms Anderson said.
To apply to become a CDU Indigenous Student Ambassador, students must be more than 18 years old and enrolled at CDU. They must also demonstrate a solid record of academic achievement.
For the selection criteria and to apply to volunteer, contact your local IASU or the ISA Program Manager, Betty Ah Kit, on P: (08) 8946 6640 or E: Betty.AhKit@cdu.edu.au.
