2017-2018 Ambassador Program Application

Dear Prospective Ambassador,
 
Thank you for your interest in the Arts & Sciences Ambassador Program. Please take a moment to review the information below.  Our ambassador application has now closed and we are no longer accepting applications for the 2017-2018 cycle. If you have any questions about the application, please contact Will Bickers at wrbick2@uky.edu.
 
History
The College of Arts & Sciences initiated its first Student Ambassador Program in the Fall of 1999. The purpose of this highly selective group of A&S students is to promote pride in a liberal arts education and to assist in strengthening the identity of both the College of Arts & Sciences and the University of Kentucky. The A&S Ambassadors develop leadership and communication skills while representing the College to visitors, alumni, and prospective and current students.
 
Activities
A&S Ambassadors have a wide range of responsibilities, including, but not limited to
  • Participation in UK recruiting efforts such as UK See Blue Preview Nights, Come See For Yourself and other high school outreach events
  • Service to fellow students in the form of Merit Weekends, the A&S Open House, and Career Fairs
  • Representation of the college during homecoming and at other alumni meetings, receptions, advisory board activities, and similar events deemed appropriate by the Dean of the College
  • Creation of original content for the A&S Ambassador website and social media outlets.
  • Coordination of a college-wide service project
Qualifications
Qualified applicants must be full-time undergraduate students (enrolled in at least 12 hours) with their primary degree declared in the College of Arts & Sciences. At least 24 credit hours at the University of Kentucky Campus must be earned by the end of the 2017 Spring Semester, with a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.00. Qualified applicants must possess a positive attitude with a commitment to learning more about the College of Arts & Sciences.
 
Selection Process
Completed applications are reviewed by an Arts & Sciences Committee with emphasis on: desire to convey pride in the College of Arts & Sciences; effective oral and written communication skills; interest and involvement in campus activities; and willingness to commit time and energy to the program. The top candidates will be invited for individual interviews with the Committee. Final selections will be made after the interviews have been completed.
 
Training & Class/Meetings
Training is provided; regular attendance to class/meetings are required and will be held on Monday afternoons. An A&S Ambassador is expected to adjust his/her schedule so there are no conflicts – attendance at the training session and at meetings is mandatory.  Students selected for the A&S Ambassador Program will be awarded one-hour elective course credit for their participation with the class/program.  The course will be offered as A&S elective.
 
Length of Service
Ambassadors serve for one year, as long as they are actively enrolled as full-time (at least 12 hours) undergraduates in the College, and maintain a 3.00 cumulative GPA.
