Created in 2013, the College Ambassadors program brings together CAS undergraduate students who have excelled academically and are involved in campus and community activities. The students are nominated by faculty and staff to represent the College at a variety of university-sponsored events. Ambassadors serve as liaisons between the Dean’s Office and the student body, assist their home departments with alumni and service events, and provide insights and information to prospective students and their parents.
Throughout the year, Ambassadors also participate in unique professional development opportunities, including leadership training, community engagement activities, and networking events with faculty and alumni. In past years, Ambassadors helped celebrate the CAS centennial, spoke at Open House, assisted with CAS 101 classroom presentations, interacted with alumni, and thanked donors for their contributions to the College.
Departments may nominate up to two College Ambassadors each
academic year. If there is a student whom you feel exemplifies the
fine qualities of your department, as well as the academic and
professional excellence of the College of Arts and Sciences, please
consider nominating him or her to serve as a College
