Undergraduate Ambassadors

SEAS Undergraduate Ambassadors

The SEAS Undergraduate Ambassadors program is a student leadership opportunity for rising juniors and seniors. The program supports the development of the SEAS community through Ambassadors’ participation in admissions events, community outreach activities, special programming, and peer mentoring within their respective majors. The Ambassadors are representatives of SEAS, their respective departments, and a variety of special populations such as transfer students, international students, and student athletes. Throughout their time serving as an ambassador, students gain invaluable leadership experience, communication skills, public speaking, and mentoring skills.

The SEAS Undergraduate Ambassadors are juniors and seniors who provide major-specific mentoring to sophomores as well as internal and external transfer students. The Ambassadors plan and execute programming throughout the year to support these student populations while serving as department liaisons for their majors. Additionally, they support and promote SEAS during recruitment and admissions events.

Each year the Undergraduate Ambassadors recruit, select, and train new ambassadors for the upcoming year. The recruitment process begins late in the fall semester and includes an application and an interview.

Please view the eligibility requirements for Ambassadors to apply to be an Ambassador. If you would like to apply to be an Ambassador please fill out this application. To preview the required short answer application questions, refer to SEAS Ambassadors Short Answer Application Questions. (Note that once you begin the application, you will not be able to save your progress. We recommend that you write your responses in a Word document prior to opening up the survey so that you do not lose your progress.)
