About the Program
Who We Are:
An innovative program designed to meet our college’s need for the active participation of informed and dedicated student leaders.
Program features include:
- Choosing 10-12 exclusively-selected representatives of the student population to perform a variety of services, such as conducting campus tours for visitors, serving as host/hostesses for official college events and recruitment.
- The selection process begins with an application to be completed by the student and reference letters. Finalists will be determined through an interview process and notified of the results.
- An extensive three-day leadership training and development component of this program is required in August.
We are looking for students with outgoing personalities, professional appearance and high academic achievement (3.2 GPA or better in high school or college).
Nominees will be screened for strong oral and written communication skills (public speaking), knowledge of the college and community, ability to make a positive impression, scheduling flexibility, access to transportation, and high level of commitment to PCC.
Ambassadors must maintain full-time status and perform 3-5 hours of required volunteer service work per week.
Ambassador scholarship service requirement/activities must be considered first priority in light of other work commitments — no exceptions will be made.
PCC Student Ambassadors are required to attend three days of intensive leadership training each August before the start of fall semester.
Training includes effective communication and public speaking tips, meetings with college administrators, personality assessments, and instruction on leading campus tours and developing leadership skills.
During the final phase of training, the students elect officers, schedule meetings for fall semester, and select a service project for the year.
Ambassadors receive compensation in the form of tuition and fees and will be provided with collegiate attire to distinguish them as official college representatives.
