Student Ambassadors Complete Successful Year of Service

Student Ambassadors Complete Successful Year of Service

On behalf of everyone at the LGBT Center, we would like to take this opportunity to express our thanks and gratitude to our amazing team of student Ambassadors!

Over the past year, each member of the Ambassador team contributed significantly to the success of advancing the mission of the LGBT Center. Ambassadors staffed the center for 3-5 hours per week, volunteered for all major events and programs, participated in Speakouts, advised center staff on important issues, provided resources to students and visitors and created a safe, welcoming environment to those who needed it most.

As part of their leadership development training, Ambassadors participated in monthly workshops on topics such as conflict resolution, team building, crisis intervention, event programming, communication styles and time management. Perhaps the greatest leadership development highlight for the team was the opportunity to attend NGLTF’s Creating Change Conference, the largest annual gathering of activists, leaders and organizers in the LGBT movement.

In additional to working in the center and volunteering for all programs, each Ambassador was responsible for developing and implementing an outreach project to serve the broader campus community. Through their individual outreach projects, Ambassador team members created the Pride T-Shirt logo; assisted with the center’s inaugural one-day intercollegiate conference; served as a liaison to the Latin American & Hispanic Student Organization (LAHSO); brought an LGBT voice to the planning of the College Women’s Leadership Conference; served as a liaison to Speed School students; provided resources to Trans students; and co-directed PINK.

Please join us in thanking the 2013-2014 LGBT Center Ambassador Team and congratulating them on a successful year of service!

Big thanks and appreciation goes out to…
