Student Ambassadors

Sharing their love for the School of Liberal Arts

Our Student Ambassadors represent the school to future students, alumni, donors, and the community.

Being an Ambassador is a great way to support your school, to network with people at IUPUI and in Indianapolis, and to get valuable experience for your resume and your IUPUI Top 100 Students application.

Read this page to learn what Ambassadors do and how to apply.

What do Ambassadors do?

  • Represent the school at events like the Joseph Taylor Symposium and Liberal Arts Talks.
  • Help recruit students to the school by speaking to prospective students
  • Participate in orientation workshops
  • Guide new students as they adjust to the school and IUPUI
  • Assist faculty and staff
  • Interact with alumni and donors, business and community leaders, and the public

How much of a commitment is it?

Ambassadors must volunteer for two events per semester. Many help with more.

Ambassadors are selected for one-year terms and may be invited back for additional years.

Tyauna Valliant

I’ve grown tremendously as a result of being a Student Ambassador. I’m much more open minded and willing to tackle new things and talk to new people. I’ve met so many intelligent people who have helped me to think differently about the world.
