Honors Ambassadors

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

Potential roles/responsibilities may include (but are not limited to): 

  • Assisting with and/or presenting at UC Admission events (Open Houses, Bearcats Brunch, etc.)
  • 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 an 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)
  • Active engagement with the University Honors Program
  • Strong understanding of the University Honors Program framework
  • A committment to reflection and personal improvement
