About the Ambassador Program:
In Spring 2009, the UGA Griffin Ambassadors organization was formed. Undergraduate and graduate students* are selected annually to serve as official hosts and goodwill ambassadors for campus and community events. This select group works with the campus administration to welcome university and public officials to the Griffin campus, visits with prospective students, assists faculty and staff with campus-wide events, hosts alumni on the UGA - Griffin campus, and assists with the UGA - Griffin campus graduation celebration. Additionally, Ambassadors assist with recruitment events both on-campus and off-campus to help recruit students for academic programs offered at the Griffin campus.
Ambassadors are required to attend scheduled business meetings (meetings are held twice a month) for developmental and team-building activities and to discuss Ambassador assignments.
Additional attendance requirements include:
• UGA Griffin Campus Graduation Celebrations (Fall: Thursday, December 14, 2017; Spring: Thursday, May 3, 2018)
• New Student Orientation (January and August; dates to be determined)
• Ambassador Retreat (Fall; Saturday, September 30, 2017; Spring: TBD)
• Collegiate Leadership Conference (Date TBA: typically a Saturday in January or February)
Membership in the Ambassadors requires a minimum commitment of two semesters. Thus, only students who will graduate Spring 2018 or later will be considered for selection in Fall 2017.
Applications for the 2017 UGA Griffin Ambassadors team will be accepted until 5:00 p.m. on Friday, September 1, 2017.
*Students must be enrolled in at least 6 hours of course work at UGA - Griffin each term (excluding summer) to be eligible to serve as a UGA Griffin Ambassador.
Ø Interviews will be held the week of September 5th--and September 11th, if necessary.
