AAD Ambassadors

CAUS student ambassadors at the fall 2019 homecoming tailgate

Student leaders, ready and equipped to serve.

Who are the AAD Ambassadors? This select group of undergraduate students serve as advocates, liaisons, and leaders for the College of Architecture, Arts, and Design. Our ambassadors represent a wide span of majors across the college and come from different points in their academic journeys. 

In the spirit of Ut Prosim, AAD ambassadors participate in a variety of service-oriented opportunities. These include serving as tour guides for prospective students and their families during campus visits, participating in recruitment events like Open House, and hosting alumni and other visitors during college advancement events. 

Ask an Ambassador

One of the most important ways our ambassadors serve is connecting with prospective students. Want to know what it's like to major in environmental policy and planning? Looking for insight into the architecture program's studio culture? Ask an ambassador! We can connect prospective students to an AAD ambassador enrolled in their preferred major for a closer look at student life. 

Contact director of academic advising Rob Jacks to get connected to one of our ambassadors.

Serve as an Ambassador

Are you interested in serving as an inspiration to the new students we welcome into AAD every year? If so, consider joining the ambassador program. Your active participation as a AAD ambassador helps develop leadership skills and promotes a personal commitment to serving others. In addition to broadening your exposure to the college, its degree programs, and students in other schools, many of our students and graduates have also found that their professional experience and resumes benefit from ambassador service. 

The college recruits for new ambassadors every spring. Interested students must submit an application along with their resume and a faculty letter of reference. The selection process also includes an interview. Qualified candidates who exhibit an eager commitment to serve will be strongly considered for the program. 

Have questions about the AAD ambassador program? Contact director of academic advising Rob Jacks.
