The mission of the ACTC Student Ambassador program is for participants to serve as a role model for all current and future ACTC students. ACTC student ambassadors are exemplary leaders who support the strategic plan of the college. They will support recruitment and enrollment for the college, promote student engagement and increase awareness of college services and programs. Most importantly, they will display pride in being an ACTC student and will represent the student body at school and community events. The ACTC Student Ambassadors program will consist of four campus leaders who help prospective students, families, and the community understand the benefits of being part of the ACTC family. They are role models and frontline representatives of the college dedicated to working closely with Student Success and Enrollment Services, Resource Development, and the Office of the President representing ACTC in a variety of capacities. By becoming a Student Ambassador, students are signifying their willingness to serve ACTC and support the goals and mission of our college while having fun at the same time.
All ACTC Student Ambassadors are responsible for assisting with determined college activities and services. Student class schedule will be considered when planning ambassador weekly commitments. Each Student Ambassador commits to completing a minimum three hours of service per week. There is also a program meeting once a month that is mandatory to attend. Some evening and weekend activities may be scheduled. In-person participation is required.
