Faculty are invited to submit an application to serve as a Faculty Ambassador. Faculty Ambassadors promote the college to prospective students and encourage current students to engage in FACS activities throughout the academic year.

Many FACS faculty already participate and represent the College at a variety of events such as recruiting activities, alumni functions, seminars, and receptions. We appreciate faculty and want to offer an incentive with a monetary award for $500. These funds are for scholarly support (e.g. travel, supplies, equipment) and all funds must be spent before the deadline of the fiscal year. Faculty Ambassadors are recognized at the Celebrating Excellence Luncheon in October.

At all times, selected faculty must act as positive ambassadors of the College via language, appearance, and activities. 

What is the role of a Faculty Ambassador?

  • Positively promote the College to prospective students and their guests
  • Participate in the College of Family and Consumer Sciences leadership retreat held Friday, August 25 - Saturday, August 26 which will include a faculty ambassador meeting.
  • Participate in FACS recruiting events throughout the academic year (at least 5 hours per semester)

How do I apply?
