About the UTSA Ambassadors
Established in 1988, the UTSA Ambassador Program consists of a select group of more than 60 student leaders. Ambassadors act as student hosts at campus events, university-sponsored conferences, and community and alumni functions. They exemplify a willingness to learn about UTSA and have a sincere desire to represent the university.
Committed to service, leadership and integrity, the Ambassadors provide more than 7,000 service hours to the UTSA community each year. You may have seen the Ambassadors in action on campus at the Fall Convocation, information tables at the beginning of each semester, the fall and spring Commencement ceremonies, or giving campus tours for prospective students, parents and other visitors. Other annual Ambassador events include the Etiquette Dinner, Amber Dinner, Ambassador Banquet, and fall and spring retreats.
