Student Ambassadors meet a large group of students, faculty, and staff from all over campus; our program is supported by faculty, ASAP staff, Student Life staff, Counseling & Health Services, the KCC Chief of Staff, and many more! Beyond networking, Student Ambassadors, through training and volunteer service, develop skill that support their academic and professional goals (i.e. leadership, public speaking, confidence, critical thinking, teamwork, responsibility, and more!!). Student Ambassadors also get some great swag, including bags, shirts, jackets, and personalized name tags. MOST importantly, Student Ambassadors get a chance to help their fellow students, and play a big role in creating a culture of support and engagement on campus.
