Student Success Ambassadors
Student Success Ambassadors (SSAs) will serve as enthusiastic and encouraging role models, mentors, and peer sources of important information for students at UT with an emphasis on serving students from traditionally underrepresented and marginalized communities including but not limited to,
- first-generation students,
- students from low-income backgrounds,
- and students of color.
SSAs will be matched with first-year student populations mentioned above to meet with during the Fall and Spring semesters. SSAs will provide individualized or group academic, social, and emotional support services to students seeking mentorship. Student Success Ambassadors will take an 8-week FYS 401 training class during the second session of the Spring semester. Additional responsibilities may include outreach, social media, marketing, program planning, and presentations. SSAs will receive a $500 stipend at the end of the Fall 2021 and Spring 2022 semesters for their work during that semester.
