Your students are your best advancement assets. They connect with your prospects, increase peer giving awareness, act as compelling institutional spokespeople, and express the most powerful gratitude to your most appreciated donors. Admissions departments have used these skills for years, but developing students into effective advancement representatives requires well-defined goals and thorough training.

Join us online to learn how to create an advancement ambassador program that harnesses your students' potential, pairs their skills with your shop's vision, and supports their own professional goals. Using Cal Poly's Student Philanthropy Council and Carnegie Mellon's Highland Ambassador Program as models, you will learn:

* How to get administrative and student buy-in
* The key elements for a meaningful ambassador program
* How to train and develop student leaders
* Implementation considerations based on your institution's size and culture
