Meet our campus emissaries.

The President’s Emissaries are some of our best and brightest students and represent the president at various events on campus.

What We Do

The emissaries interact with various groups, including administrators, alumni, donors, trustees, community leaders and dignitaries who visit campus. Duties include hosting dinners, assisting with meetings and conducting campus tours for trustees and other dignitaries. Emissaries are also for field trips and awards relating to their position.

Who Can Join

Membership is open to sophomores, juniors and seniors with a demonstrated record of academic success (minimum GPA of 2.5) and a willingness to commit to a one-year term of service. Students can reapply each year for membership. Because emissaries represent the Office of the President, they are expected to exhibit poise and professionalism. With this in mind, orientation and professional business training is provided to all new members. As a part of the application process, we will conduct an academic and character review for each candidate.

If you’re interested in an activity that will provide you with training, networking opportunities and an opportunity to learn outside of the classroom, becoming a president’s emissary could be the best fit for you.

The application deadline is Feb. 19, 2018.
