Student Ambassador Forum

Student Ambassador Committee

Fostering the next generation of leaders

Each term, students elect a committee of peers who represent them to improve the student experience on campus. Fostering a spirit of democratic cooperation among the student body, the committee works together as a mini-company, with each member serving in a different capacity.

Their involvement on campus includes organizing events and parties, promoting student activities on social media, putting together the yearbook, expressing academic concerns to faculty, and supervising school clubs.
