The program’s staff of current students recruits prospective students through campus tours, open house events, and off-site fairs and receptions. Often serving as the first contact prospective students have with the UO, Ambassadors act as the UO’s public face, representing what it means to be a Duck to a large and varied audience.

Ambassadors will give campus tours to visitors and act as a student representative at off-site recruitment events when needed. Duties also include working Duck Preview and Duck Days events, serving on student panels, referring questions to appropriate departments, and other duties as assigned.

These students have an in-depth knowledge of multicultural recruitment issues and a broad base of involvement with campus services and resources related to cultural diversity.
