Ambassadors Wanted


 

Do you have what it takes to be a College of Science Ambassador?

Ambassadors participate in a wide variety of activities in the College. They mentor small groups of first-year and transfer students majoring in the College of Science. They aid in the recruitment of strong STEM students by visiting high schools, giving tours of our science buildings, and hosting other recruitment events where they work and communicate with prospective College of Science students. They also help plan and execute socials and workshops for current students. Aside from events, our Ambassadors help with our social media presence, welcome new students to the U during Orientation, and staff the front desk of our Advising Office!

Ambassadors should be well-rounded individuals with a love for the University of Utah and the College of Science! We are looking for students who have strong interpersonal skills and the ability to work in a team environment.

NOTE: Set aside up to an hour because the application does not save your progress if you exit. Be prepared to provide a resume and answer several short response questions.
