The UAB Ambassador Program is the oldest and most prestigious student leadership opportunity on campus. This group of dedicated students is committed to serving the University as the official hosts and hostesses at recognized activities and events of the University of Alabama at Birmingham.

This select group primarily serves as a liaison between the students, faculty, staff, administrators and the entire UAB community. At all times, they embody through their demeanor and speech everything for which UAB stands.

Functions of the Ambassadors include providing information and assistance to UAB administration, faculty, staff, student body and visitors. This program is coordinated through Student Involvement and Leadership at UAB.
