Diversity Student Ambassadors

Mission & Purpose

In collaboration with the Office of Equal Opportunity & Diversity Programs, the Diversity Student Ambassadors focus on peer education around diversity and inclusion by developing and assisting with programs targeted towards all communities represented on campus. These individuals bring diverse perspectives and are dedicated to the continuation of support for all members of our community in the pursuit of all-inclusive excellence through diversity. The ambassadors strive to:

  • Advance learning and knowledge by applying theory to practice.
  • Prepare students with the skills needed in a growing multicultural world.
  • Challenge themselves to identify the legacy they want to leave behind.
  • Participate in community outreach (i.e. Saturday Academy).
  • Cultivate student leaders who are focused on current diversity issues.

If you're interested in becoming an ambassador, the applications will be available around April 2018. If you have any questions about becoming an ambassador or would like to know more about the program in general, contact the diversity office at diversity@wcu.edu.
