UAB Ambassador Program

UAB Ambassadors

About Us


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

This select group of 20 individuals primarily serve as liaisons 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 the UAB Administration, faculty, staff, student body, and visitors. This program is coordinated through the UAB Office of Student Activities.
