Become a SOLES Student Ambassador

2019-2020 Ambassador Group
"The ambassadors were a big part of my decision too! Their availability and openness about their experiences in the program really made me, helped me, 'see myself' as a student in the CMHC program and at USD. Other schools had student advocates, but USD's were by far the most prevalent, available, and helpful during the application process. That's why I ended up joining the ambassadors, so I could pass on that opportunity to the next round of prospective students!"

About the SOLES Student Ambassador Program

SOLES ambassadors are graduate students who have been selected to serve as official student representatives. The SOLES Graduate Student Ambassador Program is designed to support Graduate School and field-level efforts to recruit diverse students. The goal of the Ambassador Program is to incorporate SOLES graduate students from diverse backgrounds into the recruitment process.

Ambassadors support prospective and incoming students by assisting at graduate student events, providing campus tours, and interacting with students through email, online webinars, blog posts, and social media. Ambassadors also serve as liaisons between their departments and the SOLES Graduate Admissions and Outreach Office. Throughout the year, ambassadors write about campus events, research, experiences, organizations, and general graduate student life.
