About Us

The University Ambassador Program at UTB is a volunteer group of outstanding student leaders who provide outreach to prospective students and guests at the UTB, as well as attend special events on behalf of the University.  Each year, University Ambassadors participate in a variety of recruitment activities both on- and off-campus. University Ambassadors are also asked to assist at formal University events where student representation is needed.

The University Ambassador position is one that is held with high honor at the University and is coordinated through the Office of Leadership Programs. Those chosen for the program will be given the opportunity to develop their leadership and communication skills that will be imperative in their future careers.
