What do Ambassadors do?

Student Ambassadors assist college representatives at a number of recruitment-based and college-related projects and events throughout the year, including:

  • Planning and executing department community-building events
  • Interacting with prospective high school students, transfer students, and their guests to explain the benefits of a Humanities major
  • Recording selfie-videos for social media
  • Attending bi-monthly ambassador meetings
  • Assisting with the Tucson Humanities Festival...and many more!

What are the benefits?

Becoming an Ambassador is a great way to more deeply connect with the college, faculty, staff, and other students. In addition, members will develop excellent communication, interaction and other important skills that translate to any career following graduation. Finally, participants earn internship units and an engaged learning notification on their UA transcript.
