Presidential Ambassadors

Leading Through Gratitude


The Presidential Ambassador Program seeks to cultivate a community that celebrates generosity and gratitude by creating connections between student leaders and donors to advance the legacy of giving at CSU.

Founded in 2006, the CSU Presidential Ambassadors program engages a diverse group of student leaders that represent the Office of the President at various university functions to celebrate the impact of philanthropy and promote the positive image of Colorado State University.

Members of this group are highly-skilled and experienced student leaders selected to represent the University on a volunteer basis. Through planned interactions with University constituents, Presidential Ambassadors advance public understanding of the University and her students’ role in its growth and success. By sharing the story of their unique CSU experiences, Ambassadors validate the philanthropic contributions of donors, alumni, friends, faculty, staff and the student body.

Help Leave a Legacy

In the true spirit of the Presidential Ambassadors’ mission, promoting the strategic plan of Colorado State University does not stop at graduation. In fact, we believe that this is just the beginning of a lifelong desire to continue advocating for the University and program that gave us not only an excellent education, but the opportunity to transform and create our futures.

The goal of the Presidential Ambassadors Legacy Scholarship is to annually provide returning Presidential Ambassadors with a scholarship toward their education at CSU.
