College Ambassador Program
Students build leadership skills, enhance their resumes, and gain a unique networking experience, all while providing crucial service to the College.
Formed in 1993, the College of Liberal Arts and Human Sciences Ambassadors Program provides over 3,000 volunteer hours to the college and the college departments each year. Student Ambassadors build their leadership skills and their resumes, while providing crucial service to the college. Students get a unique networking experience, interacting with faculty, administrators, staff, parents, alumni, and prospective students.
As the Ambassadors are the student representatives of the college, we utilize an application through a competitive process including a paper application and interviews. New student members are selected in the fall to join the College Ambassadors Program. Over 50 students are part of the program.
