The CALS Ambassador program was the first of its type at the University of Idaho and continues to be the largest college ambassador team on campus. The team consists of current students in the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences who are selected to represent the college and its programs at events on and off campus. Ambassadors are students with outstanding achievement and leadership potential that share their knowledge and enthusiasm with prospective students. They inspire others to dream, learn and ultimately become part of the CALS family.
The activities that ambassadors focus on are broad and may include representing CALS and its programs at events such as Ag Days, Envision Idaho and UIdaho Bound, as well as traveling to regional/state/national conventions and high school science classrooms in Idaho and neighboring states. Ambassadors receive scholarships and academic credit for the critical role they play in supporting recruitment efforts.
