University Honors Ambassadors

University Honors Ambassadors are a select group of University Honors students who represent the University Honors Program (UHP) on campus and in the community. Ambassadors share information about their experiences within the UHP as well as, more broadly, the University of Cincinnati. In addition to representing the UHP, ambassadors may also plan, coordinate, and/or co-facilitate programs with the University Honors Program.

  • Hosting prospective students and families (for lunch, shadowing a class, etc.)
  • Sharing experiences and meeting with small groups of Gateway (HNRS1010) students
  • Hosting social activities for the UHP community
  • Promoting UHP community through Social media
  • Co-leading UHP Orientation sessions (summer)
  • Serving on UHP and universities committees (PLME, Honors Seminar Review, Honors Council, student focus groups, etc.)
  • Sharing their UHP learning portfolio
  • Other opportunities as they arise

Qualifications for being a University Honors Ambassador include:

  • Desire to help and lead other students
  • Well-developed communication skills
  • Interest in working with a diverse team of people
  • Satisfactory progress towards completion of UHP requirements ("in good standing" with regards to your experiences, GPA, and learning portfolio)
