Dean's Ambassadors

The Dean's Ambassadors program engages a distinct group of student leaders in activities representing the college. Ambassadors play a central role in admissions, student affairs, outreach, development, and dean's events throughout the calendar year.

Dean's Ambassadors serve the college in a variety of capacities: as college tour guides, hosts for special guests, volunteers at college events and community functions, participants in admissions activities and interview days, and more. Members showcase the excellence of the college to the community and are models of professionalism, hospitality, character and College of Medicine pride.

Students are selected through a competitive application and interview process. After selection, ambassadors have opportunities to take part in training in areas such as leadership, professional development, university organization, diversity and inclusion, and other areas.

Benefits

Dean's Ambassadors have unique opportunities to network with important university constituents and enhance their professional skills. Ambassadors gain invaluable real-world experiences and build their resumes while representing the Central Michigan University College of Medicine. Workshop and development events for ambassadors are scheduled throughout the academic year. Dean's Ambassadors also receive an official polo, blazer, name tag, certificate of appreciation and letter of commendation from the dean at the conclusion of their service.

Time commitment

Ambassadors should expect to invest significant time in the program. Though there is no minimum amount of participation required, ambassadors will be asked to participate in frequent College of Medicine events throughout the year.
