Ambassadors engage in a yearlong comprehensive training program including workshops designed for student leadership and communication skills, CPR training, etiquette skills and committee work.
"I invite UTSA community members to nominate outstanding second-semester freshman, sophomore, junior, senior or graduate students for membership in the UTSA Ambassadors program," said Patricia Graham, UTSA executive director of special events.
In making nominations, consider the following qualities in students: scholarship (minimum 2.75 cumulative GPA), leadership potential, participation in extracurricular and academic activities, and willingness to serve the university.
Nominees will be asked to complete an application form and to participate in an individual interview. The new UTSA Ambassadors will be announced in late March 2009.
