Presidential Ambassadors

Mission & Purpose

Florida Polytechnic University Presidential Ambassadors are students with demonstrated servant leadership abilities who are appointed by the University President to serve as official and formal hosts at designated events. Presidential Ambassadors are selected each academic year for their academic standing, leadership skills, citizenship and service activities.

A distinguished and one-of-a-kind leadership development opportunity, the Presidential Ambassador program offers its members a chance to network with important University constituents and enhance their public relations, event planning, and professional etiquette skills while engaging in service to the Florida Poly community.

The mission of the Presidential Ambassadors is to serve and represent the President and Florida Polytechnic University at designated University events, to promote the successes and vision of our University, and to demonstrate excellence through leadership, academics, and citizenship.

Presidential Ambassadors represent the University on a volunteer basis.
