Community Ambassador Program
Contact Shakira Adams
The primary function of a Community Ambassador is to represent Rutgers and the School of Nursing at community events and special programs. Community Ambassadors have typically volunteered at hospitals, after school programs, and soup kitchens. They have also represented the School of Nursing at luncheons, recruitment events, professional conferences, Pinning and award ceremonies, convocation and school tours. Community Ambassadors are generally outgoing and highly motivated students. Applicants must be diplomatic and willing to engage professionally with the outside community, alumni, and university officials. Becoming a Community Ambassador is the perfect opportunity to network with the larger Rutgers community and the greater Newark community.
