Foreign Service Day originated in 2016 with the recognition that students from a variety of academic disciplines gravitated to the same career goal: a career in the Foreign Service. A cross-campus collaboration was created between four units in order to build a professional high-impact career readiness experience. This full day conference has promoted community engagement and cultivated partnerships with the US State Department and associated organizations.  After a rigorous application process, students are invited to attend this event involving direct networking opportunities, hands-on simulations, and break-out sessions featuring current and former Foreign Service Officers.  A featured highlight of the day includes a high-profile keynote speaker, among whom have included Ambassadors and Deputy Secretaries of State. We will share student outcomes from these events based upon survey results and career outcomes, showing how cross-functional collaboration can lead to increased student engagement and success. This presentation will share a blueprint for high-impact events across campus that you can adapt for your students and your field.
