College Ambassadors

The mission of the College Ambassador Program is two-fold: to connect and strengthen relations among students, alumni and CSS leadership; and to support the College and its initiatives. Ambassadors facilitate opportunities for CSS students to become active and empowered members of campus, local and global communities. Developing and fostering a vibrant student community for a full academic year, the Ambassadors work directly with the CSS Dean and leadership team to prepare them for leadership roles in a changing world.
