Meet the new student ambassadors

Seventeen Liberal Arts students are serving as student ambassadors during the 2018-19 academic year. The students will represent the school at special events and functions, and participate in student recruitment efforts, as well as alumni and donor relations activities.

As members of the student ambassador program, the students will have opportunities to share their ideas, passions, and experiences as liberal arts students with the dean.

"We are excited to have these great students represent the School of Liberal Arts,” says Interim Dean Robert Rebein. "They rank among our best students and their desire to share their liberal arts passion with the IUPUI and Indianapolis community is a beautiful thing to behold."
