Meet the campus ambassadors who personify
University of Dayton hospitality and inclusiveness.
The President Emissaries are some of our best and brightest students. This diverse group represents the president at various events on campus.
What We Do
The emissaries interact with various groups, including administrators, alumni, donors, trustees, community leaders and dignitaries who visit campus. Duties include hosting dinners, assisting with meetings and conducting campus tours for trustees and other dignitaries. Other activities for members include dinners, field trips and awards.
Who Can Join
Membership is open to sophomores, juniors and seniors with a demonstrated record of academic success (minimum GPA of 2.5) and a willingness to commit to a one-year term of service. Students can reapply each year for membership. Because emissaries represent the Office of the President, they are expected to exhibit poise and professionalism. With this in mind, orientation and professional business training is provided to all new members. As a part of the application process, an academic and character review for each candidate is conducted.
If you are interested in an activity that will provide you with training, networking opportunities and an opportunity to learn outside of the classroom, this may be the organization for you.
If you have questions, please contact the Office of the President at 937-229-4122 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
