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:

- Assisting with and/or presenting at UC Admission events (Open Houses, Bearcats Brunch, etc.)
- Facilitating workshops for peers on learning portfolio development, proposal writing, and reflection
- Co-leading UHP Orientation sessions (summer)
- Hosting prospective students and families (for lunch, shadowing a class, etc.)
- Serving on UHP and universities committees (PLME, Honors Seminar Review, Honors Council, student focus groups, etc.)
- Hosting social activities for the UHP community
- Publishing their UHP learning portfolio on the UHP website
- Promoting UHP community through social media
- Other opportunities as they arise

- 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
