Florida International University (FIU) Student Ambassadors are a select group of students who serve as hosts and hostesses for visiting dignitaries at numerous university and community functions. These events may include conferences held at FIU, convocations, guest lectures, athletic tailgates, President’s Council meetings, campus tours, Regan House tours and the annual Torch Awards Gala. The offices of the President, Vice Presidents, Deans, Alumni Relations and other prominent areas within FIU work with Ambassadors for their various needs. Student Ambassadors are vital to the mission of the university.

To be selected as an Ambassador is an honor and an excellent opportunity for personal and professional growth. Students who are selected as Ambassadors possess strong interpersonal skills, consider philanthropy important, have excellent leadership qualities, and have a genuine interest in meeting new people, as well as a sense of school spirit and pride.

We serve the prominent offices of the University to advocate and represent the greatest needs of FIU, the needs of our students, future Panthers, and alumni.
