Teacher ambassadors

As a teacher, you can become a member of the Teacher Ambassador Program, which helps promote K-State to potential students. Through participation in the K-State Teacher Ambassador Program, students you work with will have up-to-date information about K-State through packets of information in the fall and spring semesters and electronic newsletters. As an ambassador you will play an integral role in providing information about K-State to your students, including notices of upcoming events both on and off the campus.

If you are interested in serving as a Teacher Ambassador please e-mail Courtney Hallenbeck, challen@k-state.edu.
