“I believe that this dynamic group of ambassadors will play a crucial role in fostering a sense of community, engagement, and collaboration,” said Dean Venky Venkatachalam. “With a combined 10 unique spoken languages, their diverse skills, experiences, and perspectives will undoubtedly contribute to the success and vibrancy of our community.”

Throughout their time as ambassadors, they will be representing the College at events along with interacting and mentoring current and prospective students. They will also be the voice of the student body. Their experiences, opinions, and ideas will help shape the future of our campus community and directly influence improvements within the College of Management.
