The Chancellor’s Ambassadors assume their responsibilities at a mandatory retreat where they study the history of the University, discuss etiquette, and tour campus facilities. Ambassadors must be able to serve for the entire academic year. They are expected to attend meetings and be readily available to host University events planned by the Chancellor's office. Generally, Student Ambassadors serve during either their junior or senior year.
Applications for Student Ambassador Positions are available at the Director’s Office, located in the Nebraskan Student Union during the Spring semester.
Applicants must have completed a minimum of 40 credit hours prior to making application.
Applicants select an interview time when their application is submitted.
Ambassador interviews are held during the Spring semester for the following year. Selection of Ambassadors is based on availability and willingness to serve, knowledge of the university, leadership, campus involvement; academic background; poise; and interpersonal and communication skills. The Ambassador Board will consider the overall membership of the group to obtain the best representation of the student body.
Serving as an Ambassador is an opportunity and a privilege. You will polish your leadership skills, increase your self-confidence, and learn to better serve others. You will also learn more about your university as you interact with other Student Ambassadors, members of the faculty and administration, and state and national leaders who visit our campus.
