Carnegie Mellon University

Meet the CMU Highland Ambassadors

The Highland Ambassadors program is a vital part of creating and maintaining an engaged student-alumni community at Carnegie Mellon. These involved student leaders are the bridge between current students and alumni, serving as advisors, advocates, event support and marketers for Alumni Association initiatives. Highland Ambassadors are undergraduate and graduate students with representation across all schools and colleges.

Become a Highland Ambassador

Through an application and interview process, you can be selected to be an Ambassador for your enthusiasm and school spirit, as well as your demonstrated leadership and commitment to the university. Applications will open in March 2021 for the 2021-2022 year.

Request a Highland Ambassador for Your Event

The Highland Ambassadors are highly trained and deeply knowledgeable students and will represent your department and the university with Tartan pride. They may be requested for events with significant student-alumni interaction or for tours for VIP guests. Highland Ambassadors serve as official student representatives but may assist with brief program logistics, if appropriate.
