CCI Land Ambassadors

Mission and Purpose


The purpose of the CCI Ambassadors Program is to assist the College of Communication and Information with student recruitment, alumni relations, community outreach, student retention and college events, and to help the college tell its story to a variety of important constituencies. Prospective students should feel free to contact CCI Ambassadors to request a campus tour, learn more about the college or university as a whole, or simply discuss communication as a potential career.
