Student Ambassadors for Public Health (SAPH)

SAPH was created to assist prospective students in learning more about the College of Public Health. Ambassadors also help with many College events such as orientation, Career Fairs, Open House/Information Sessions, and MHA interview days. SAPH helps with these annual events plus additional events within the College. SAPH is a group comprised of graduate and undergraduate students from the College of Public Health. The primary role of the ambassadors is to serve the college, acting as liaison to prospective and current students, as well as employers at special events.

Leadership Opportunities and Benefits
Simply serving as an ambassador is a leadership experience in and of itself. Ambassadors will hone their communication and presentation skills, develop relationships with faculty, staff and students across the college and university, and gain experience in event and program planning and management.
