About the Ambassadors

Established in 1988, the UTSA Ambassador Program consists of a select group of 40+ student leaders. UTSA Ambassadors act as student hosts at campus events, university sponsored conferences, and community and alumni functions. If you have a willingness to learn about UTSA and have a sincere desire to represent the University, please consider becoming an Ambassador.

The Ambassador Organization is committed to Service, Leadership, Integrity, and Excellence. Some key events that Ambassadors assist with are:

  • Kickback in the Student Union/Convocation/Commencement/UTSA Day/Spring Break Tours/Daily Tours
