Student Activities Ambassadors

The SA&L Ambassadors work with the Student Activities and Leadership Office (SA&L) to actively engage on committees for various SA&L signature programs (e.g., Emerging Leaders Program (ELP), Fall Leadership Conference, StrengthsQuest, Homecoming); influence leadership development of CWRU students and the 200 plus USG-recognized, non-academic student organizations. We believe in the power of students to impact the campus and Cleveland area through community learning, school spirit, and student engagement & involvement. As SA&L student ambassadors, we strive to support one another and provide a platform to communicate ideas while building a supportive community among student leaders.

As student ambassadors, we are committed to:

  • Promoting SA&L and assisting in planning/implementing office events and initiatives
  • Developing leadership and skill-based workshops for student leaders and organizations
  • Celebrating student leaders and organizations and fostering a sense of campus pride
