CSE's Ambassador Program

The College of Science and Engineering (CSE) recognizes the critical need to improve communication between students, staff, faculty and the administration.  The Ambassador program has been developed to help open lines of communication and ensure an inclusive and equitable space for all.  There are two parts to the program, student ambassadors and faculty ambassadors. 

Student Ambassadors

Student ambassadors act as a liaison between students, faculty, and the Dean of CSE.  The goal of the program is to cultivate diverse leadership and empower students to explore and speak freely on issues of equity, inclusion, and diversity.  One student will be selected from each of the seven CSE departments and will work collaboratively with all constituencies within the college.  This is a compensated position.  Learn more about the program at the CSE Student Ambassador page.

Faculty Ambassadors

Faculty Ambassadors act as a liaison between students, faculty, staff and the Dean of CSE. CSE Faculty Ambassadors seek to engage in issues around advocacy, equity, and diversity in STEM.  Two of our SMATE faculty are Faculty Ambassadors:
