​Become an Ambassador​

The Purdue Animal Sciences (ANSC) Ambassadors are selected student representatives and highly-valued members of the outreach, departmental, and alumni relations leadership team of Purdue Animal Sciences. ANSC Ambassadors represent Purdue Animal Sciences by communicating with potential students, alumni, employers, faculty, and the public to promote goodwill within and for the department and university.

ANSC Ambassadors are directly involved in outreach, education, and alumni relations. Serving as an ANSC Ambassador requires a significant commitment of effort and time to make Ambassador events and activities as effective as possible. ANSC Ambassadors design and deliver many of their events, but also represent the department on numerous other occasions, e.g.. prospective student events, extension events, and departmental visitor events.

Applications to become an Animal Sciences Ambassador (start in Fall of 2022) are now open!
