Gael Community Ambassador Program

What is a Gael Community Ambassador?

Off-Campus and Commuter Services works to educate students moving into the community about being good neighbors, good citizens, and living Iona’s mission off-campus. It also works to build positive relationships with neighbors and city leaders to improve the quality of life off-campus for neighbors and students. The Gael Community Ambassador(s) will contribute to the Off-Campus and Commuter Services mission by:
  • Modeling appropriate off-campus student behavior,
  • Providing educational programs and resources to on and off-campus students (i.e. handouts, presentations, information tables, and residence hall outreach),
  • Serving as a liaison for off-campus students to Iona’s administration and the City of New Rochelle,
  • Maintaining a strong connection between Iona College and its off-campus students as well as between off-campus students and the Greater New Rochelle community,
  • Helping to build community among off-campus students,
  • Helping to increase civic engagement, civic responsibility, and good citizenship among off-campus students,
  • Helping to increase and improve communication with Iona’s neighbors,
  • Increasing collaboration with the greater New Rochelle community,
  • Improving the overall quality of life for members of the greater New Rochelle community, and
  • Encouraging local business patronage.
