Presidential Envoy Requests:

In an effort to equip our Presidential Envoys to be top-tier ambassadors for the University, we have made some changes to the program to reinforce its mission and goals. Going forward, the Envoys will only be able to support events sponsored by the President's Office and University Development and Alumni Engagement - these events alone are more than 40 in a year. Our university is growing, and while the Envoys would love to support all of the wonderful events happening across our campus we, do not have the capacity do so. We would encourage other departments looking for campus ambassadors to reach out to volunteer student organizations within your unit. Please let us know if you have any questions. Thank you again for your support!
