New Program for Engaged Leaders

First class of Community Engagement AmbassadorsIs service a part of your daily life at UD? Are you looking for a leadership position that compliments your involvement in service? The Community Engagement Ambassadors program might be for you!

Community Engagement Ambassadors are campus leaders, peer educators, and innovators in the UD community. They engage the undergraduate student body in community engagement and service, while strengthening and expanding student awareness and involvement in community engagement. Essentially, Ambassadors are leaders on campus that help other students find their fit in community engagement, building leadership skills along the way.

If you work as a UDaB site leader, engage in service abroad, take service learning courses, serve on the board of an RSO related to service, belong to a Greek organization committed to service, or dedicate your time to public service, apply to be a Community Engagement Ambassador today.

What am I doing as an Ambassador?

I’m doing a study abroad, can I still apply?

If you are studying abroad in the fall 2017 or spring 2018 semester, unfortunately you are not eligible to be an Ambassador.  Because this is an important leadership position to the student body at UD, we really need students who will be on campus!
