Each year, SAGE students can hold an active leadership role by being a SAGE Ambassador. SAGE Ambassadors host meetings and programs so SAGE students can gain leadership skills, extend their professional networks and establish lifelong friendships. During the spring quarter, SAGE students have the opportunity to run for this leadership role for the following academic year. SAGE students vote and elect their SAGE Ambassadors every year. SAGE Ambassadors are exemplary SAGE students who are active participants in the SAGE Scholars Program, the SAGE Ambassador programs, as well as on campus and in the local community. Our SAGE Ambassadors are dedicated to the professional and social development of all SAGE Scholars.
