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.
