Meet our ambassadors. SAGE Ambassadors are exemplary scholars who are active participants in the SAGE Scholars Program and in our wider campus and local communities.They work to enhance the collegiate experience of our scholars by leading quarterly events that foster networking and camaraderie among SAGErs. As Ambassadors, these leaders develop and facilitate programming meant to build scholars’ leadership skills, extend their networks, and establish lifelong friendships.
sAGE scholars have the opportunity to apply for this leadership role each year during the spring quarter and may begin their posts the following academic year.
