  • Advise and assist in content creation for the program
  • Facilitate events in collaboration with Center for Campus Wellness and campus partners
  • Increase engagement with men across campus


Each ambassador receives a $1,000 scholarship each academic year, paid in two installments (one in Fall, one in Spring).

Ambassadors are eligible to receive training in:

  • Mental Health First Aid
