One of the most selective and oldest groups at the University, the Chancellor’s Ambassadors is an honor organization comprised of exemplary undergraduates from the University of Nebraska at Kearney.
Selected to serve through a competitive application process, Student Ambassadors act as the official hosts for events held by the Office of the Chancellor. From assisting with high-profile campus visits to attending distinguished University events, members of the Chancellor’s Ambassadors help foster relationships with members, friends, alumni, and special guests of the University of Nebraska at Kearney.
Ambassadors are frequently asked to share their student experience at UNK. Student 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. Generally, Ambassadors serve during either their junior or senior year.
Serving as an Ambassador is an opportunity and a unique privilege. Students will polish their leadership skills, increase their self-confidence, and learn to better serve others. They will learn more about the University as they interact with other Ambassadors, members of the faculty and administration, and state and national leaders who visit our campus.
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 Selection Board will consider the overall membership of the group to obtain the best representation of the student body.
