We are proud of our outstanding students in the Department of ACE and are fortunate to have a group of students to represent the department and tell our story.

The ACE Ambassador Program is a group of trained students that assist prospective students in their college exploration process. Ambassadors work closely with the Department of ACE Undergraduate Programs Office as well as the College of ACES Office of Academic Programs to enhance the admissions process for prospective and incoming students. Our Ambassadors also function as leaders and foster a network of peer support where students and prospective students can voice their questions and get information on many aspects of student life.
