Need an on-campus job? Consider the CWRU Student Philanthropy Center!

Student Philanthropy Ambassadors are essential to the success of Case Western Reserve University and to maintaining strong relationships with alumni and parents. Ambassadors contact thousands of alumni and parents each year to ask for their support to CWRU and to update them with campus news. Students are the best ambassadors to talk about the CWRU experience - because they're living it.

This position requires excellent communications skills, a problem-solving mentality, the ability to think on your feet in a fast-paced environment, and a genuine affinity for Case Western Reserve University. Working on the Philanthropy Center team is a great opportunity to improve your communication, fundraising, networking, and public relations skills for life after CWRU.
