President's Student Ambassador Program at SUNY Upstate Medical University

President's Student Ambassadores

The President's Student Ambassador Program is designed to support the President of SUNY Upstate Medical University in the positive promotion of this campus. The Student Ambassador core consists of a small group of students who will volunteer to serve as student representatives of the University before a variety of important constituent groups as requested by the President.

Student Ambassadors will be invited to attend events and to speak of experiences as a student to alumni and alumnae, donors, civic and cultural leaders, and friends of the University. These individuals are very much interested in hearing from students and learning about Upstate from their point of view.

Students from this core group will be invited, as guests of the President, to attend social functions, provide tours with visiting dignitaries, and speak about student life, academics, research, and clinical experiences.

Such events include:

  • Ad Hoc Presidential Meetings
  • Commencement
  • Fall Faculty Convocation
  • Reunions
  • Search Committees
  • Social Events at the President's Home

Student Ambassadors are enthusiastic individuals who enjoy meeting new people and who are good citizens of SUNY Upstate Medical University. They are interested in enhancing the reputation of the University and presenting ideas and suggestions that will improve the campus for generations to come.

The selection process is open to all students in the Colleges of Medicine, Nursing, Health Professions, and Graduate Studies. Any student interested in serving as a member of the President's Student Ambassador Program at SUNY Upstate Medical University is welcomed to contact:
