Outreach and Community Relations: CEC 1 • 949-451-5217

IVC launched its first year-long Student Ambassador Program in 2014/15 under the leadership and direction of the Director of Outreach, Recruitment and Student Support Services. The goals of the program are to build a structured framework in which students can become familiar with the college, gain a working knowledge of the institution, and be visible in and useful to the college community. Ambassadors are required to attend training through which they are introduced to key stakeholders and learn about the operation of the institution. The IVC Student Ambassadors have become the face of the college and truly create a sense of community.
