Be an ambassador Represent WGU.

Do you consider yourself WGU’s biggest fan?

Are you always telling someone about your experience as a Night Owl? If so, you might have what it takes to join the ranks of fellow alumni in the National Ambassador's Club.

What we do.

Being a WGU Ambassador is a leadership opportunity for alumni who are dedicated to representing WGU. Members often engage with potential students, current students, and other alumni. WGU Ambassadors must: 

  • Be passionate
  • Be professional
  • Be a team player
  • Create awareness
  • Create a positive connection when communicating with others

How we do it.

As members of the National Ambassador's Club, we assist WGU in advancing its mission in a variety of ways. Members are sometimes asked to:

  • Give feedback
  • Provide testimonials, participate in media features, and be interviewed for publication
  • Be a part of marketing campaigns
  • Attend or host networking events
  • Represent WGU by attending or participating in conferences, trade events, public interviews, press events, and other events
  • Help with college-specific projects, that may include: Facilitating corporate partnerships along with WGU, facilitating conversations between WGU and school districts, or hosting events at local organizations

How to get involved.

We’re always looking for enthusiastic alumni who have a knack for public speaking, marketing, recruiting, sales, leading others, and/or public relations. The catch is we need 5-10 hours of your time per month. Please note that this is an unpaid volunteer role. If you think you fit the bill, we want to hear from you!

We are currently not accepting new applications. Please check back often and watch for new details.
