Ambassadors help the College of Education deepen its impact through thought-partnership, outreach and advocacy. Driving positive change in the field of education requires collective action. Ambassadors increase their understanding of the prevailing issues impacting education and learn about College research, partnerships and outcomes. In turn, they communicate their discoveries within spheres of influence.
