My role as a Campus Ambassador is explained here:
The specific course that I am CA to is this:

Basically, I go to a 2nd year graduate level course at Boston University where I function as a Teaching Assistant. I introduced the students to Wikipedia, including the principals of Wikipedia, how to edit, how to create sandboxes, etc. I have been to the class three times (including today) and assist the professor and students along the way.

As for me, I have been editing Wikipedia for *several* years. I have two Good Articles to my credit and have experience in new page patrolling, anti-vandalism, copy editing and other areas.

I would like to create a formal Boston/New England Wikimedia Chapter and would be happy to do a bit of the legwork in getting it off the ground. Who is interested?

I think many of us would like to hear about the ambassadorship program.

Maybe we could have a meetup with an agenda instead of a generic meet and greet.
