Honors Ambassadors are select members of the Elliott T. Bowers Honors College. Chosen through an application and interview process, the Ambassadors are called on to represent the Honors College and the University at special events throughout the year. The President's Office often calls upon the Honors Ambassadors to meet with visiting regents, political representatives, or other dignitaries. During special Honors events, the Ambassadors play important roles as hosts and greeters, table leaders, or panel participants. In many ways the ambassadors are the face of the Elliott T. Bowers Honors College.
Being an Ambassador involves taking on certain responsibilities--the willingness to give up time, often in the evenings or weekends--in the interest of supporting College events. Ambassadors need to be able to represent us well, both in deed and word. The rewards, in addition to the pleasure of having served and the esteem of having been chosen, include a stipend each semester and the opportunity to travel to honors conferences at program expense. There are sixteen ambassadors, spread throughout every class and representing every college at the University. Ambassadors are generally chosen at the end or beginning of each semester, as necessary.
