  • Collecting in-kind gifts for the CCC&TI Foundation
  • Giving campus tours and assisting with registration and orientation
  • Assisting with graduation ceremonies

Becoming an Ambassador

During spring semester each year, faculty and staff submit confidential names of curriculum students whom they wish to nominate for the Ambassador Program. Nominees must exhibit the following attributes of a quality leader:
