The goal of the Diplomat Program is to provide an ongoing orientation to incoming international students. Peer counselors (Diplomats) are to provide information on MSUM, the community and American life in general, and to assist international students during the transition to American collegiate life in order to help them get the most out of their experience here at MSUM. The Diplomat Program will promote multicultural understanding by providing an opportunity for international students and American students, who have studies abroad or are interested in other cultures, to learn about each others' cultures. Diplomats should have a willingness to learn about other cultures as well as provide information about their own culture. Experience in traveling abroad is an added bonus.
