Experiential Learning Ambassadors

EL Ambassadors are junior and senior undergraduate students who have diverse experience in experiential learning at UD. The goal of the EL Ambassadors program is to connect with primarily first- and second-year students in order to share possible experiences as well as show them how others involved. Through these interactions, students will get a better idea of how they want to be involved, both on campus and in the future.

EL Ambassadors also work through the EL Lab with first- and second-year students to create EL Roadmaps, some of which are included below.
