Professor-Ambassadors Program

The Professor-Ambassadors Program’s 2016-2017 edition has been launched!

The Faculty of Arts at the University of Ottawa has been offering the Professor-Ambassadors Program since the fall of 2015. The program is a collaborative initiative meant to provide Grade 11-12 students, secondary 4 and 5 students, as well as Cegep students from the National Capital Area a glimpse into one of three areas of study offered at the Faculty of Arts (humanities; languages and literatures; and fine arts) to help them transition into university.

This program will also allow your students to gain access to research done by our best professors.

NEWEST ADDITION! In hopes of growing and improving the Professor-Ambassadors Program, a number of our workshops will be offered at a distance for schools outside the National Capital Region. These workshops can be identified by the letter D in parenthesis.

The Professor-Ambassadors Program’s 2016-2017 programming now available. Have any questions? Send an email to our new Program Coordinator Maxine Fournier ( ).

Please note that more courses and workshops may be offered as the school year progresses.
