Student Ambassadors

The mission of the Student Ambassador Program is to promote Portland State University. They represent the student experience for prospective students and their families. Ambassadors promote the diverse Portland State community to guests, administrators, faculty, staff, alumni, community partners, dignitaries, and friends of the University.

Student Ambassadors are students first and must be able to balance their academics with the demands of the program. The primary purpose of the program is to provide a leadership laboratory through which Student Ambassadors enhance and supplement their academic, communication, time management, and other professional skills.

Student Ambassadors play a pivotal role in the recruitment process of prospective students to Portland State. We ensure that the students learn not only about Portland State University but also about the general benefits of higher education. As Student Ambassadors we strive to improve student success by acting as role models and sources of information for all students.
