CHBS Ambassadors are advocates for the college to members of the campus community, future students and alumni. They represent a diversity of CHBS departments and programs.

Ambassadors are expected to attend the CHBS Advisory Board welcoming, aid in commencement ceremonies, escort CHBS dignitaries to receptions, and participate in off-campus recruitment during the week of Spring Break and additional duties as assigned.

The CHBS Advisory Board is a group of alumni and friends of the college who actively engage with RU and offer a perspective from beyond campus.

The duties of an ambassador also include assisting guest speakers’ arrival to campus, representing the college during Highlander Days and open houses and advocating for programs and fellow students.

According to CHBS Associate Dean Tod Burke, it was this interaction with potential students that CHBS especially wanted to cultivate.

"We'll have students and parents here talking to faculty about the college, and that's nice, but let's have them hear from the students," Burke said.

Ambassadors are nominated by chairs or directors of their department or school. They must hold junior standing, as they will continue in the role as seniors.  Candidates must be in good academic and conduct standing, hold a minimum 3.2 GPA and be involved in other student organizations or groups.

"When it comes to recruitment for the college, the personal touch by the Ambassadors could make the difference. They could be role models among our students," Burke said. "We want them to be good campus citizens."
