University Life Ambassadors 

University Life Amabassadors
Leave a legacy at Columbia by becoming a University Life Ambassador! You can help build an inclusive community, gain leadership skills, and make rewarding connections with students across schools.

University Life Ambassadors contribute ideas, engage with other student leaders, consult with University Life staff, promote events and more. Ambassadors also have opportunities to share their voice, perspectives or experience on timely topics for University Life’s communications channels. 

The 2021-2022 cohort of University Life Ambassadors will come together for an orientation program to learn about University Life and different service options. From there, each Ambassador will select a focus from the following options:

  • Columbia Welcome: Ambassadors welcome students to the new academic year, plan events and help shape the community at Columbia. Columbia Welcome helps to cultivate a sense of inclusion and belonging for new and returning students at the start of each semester.
  • Wellness: Throughout the academic year, Ambassadors plan, promote and staff events, and collaborate with other student leaders to engage in important conversations about health and well-being. These Ambassadors support Wellness Days, which offer students a series of events and workshops that promote mental health and well-being.
  • Sexual Respect: Ambassadors help spread the word, engage with other student leaders and contribute ideas to the Sexual Respect and Community Citizenship Initiative (SRI).
  • Inclusion and Belonging: Ambassadors learn how to facilitate dynamic conversations about race, identity and inclusion through the Campus Conversations program. Additionally, Inclusion and Belonging Ambassadors provide critical feedback on the Community Citizenship Initiative, staff events and engage student leaders on programs and other efforts that promote inclusion and belonging across the University

All students are welcome to apply to the University Life Ambassador program, and all Ambassadors will be recognized for their contributions to the community. Applications will reopen in September.
