Americana U Campus Leader

Americana U is a partnership between the American Battlefield Trust and college students across our nation. An unfortunate reality shows that fewer and fewer students are choosing to major in the humanities and more specifically history.


We want to change that, and who better to start that process with than the population affected. Our goal is to create a peer-to-peer influence and education network to best utilize the students who are already dedicated to our nation’s history to spark that interest in their peers.


To kick off the program the American Battlefield Trust is seeking 4 motivated campus leaders. These leaders will be responsible for the following:


  • Recruit at least 5 additional campus representatives
  • Participate in leadership and representative training. 
  • Meet as a campus group twice monthly. 
  • Organize at least 3 campus events with the purpose of sparking interest in American history and encouraging students to consider history as a possible major or minor. 
  • Reach out to their university history department and school media about using Battlefields.org as a reference and resource. 
  • Collect 50+ student email addresses for the Americana U student newsletter. 
  • Share American Battlefield Trust content to their personal social media channels and/or be a content contributor to the Trust’s official social channels.


What do we offer our campus leaders and representatives?

  • Two all-expenses-paid travel opportunities for a focus group and history tour weekend.
  • Leadership experience 
  • Event planning experience 
  • Lobbying training 
  • Access to leaders in the historic preservation movement 
  • Mentorship opportunities 
  • Monthly exclusive online lectures 
  • Opportunities to self-promote to the American Battlefield Trust’s 600,000+ social media followers.
