What is the Ambassador Program?
The Alumni Ambassador Program is a companion program to the Association's chapter network.
The Alumni Association of Lakehead University (AALU) holds regularly scheduled events in regions where there are significant numbers of alumni. Many events are attended by the president of the University, Alumni Association board members, and other University representatives. The Alumni and Community Relations Office invites alumni in these areas to the various events.
Ambassadors are the key resource for all Lakehead alumni in a given region. As such, the AALU will maintain a contact list of all domestic and international Ambassadors on our website, including Ambassador email addresses so you can be contacted.
What do Ambassadors do?
Alumni Ambassadors may be called on to assist with some of the following:
- Host varsity sporting events
- Be the point of contact in your geographic area
- Provide mentoring
- Participate in student recruitment events
How do I become an Ambassador in my region?
Individuals are encouraged to submit an Alumni Ambassador application form at any time. To qualify, you must be a graduate of Lakehead University, and have adequate time to fulfill the roles and responsibilities of the position.
Alumni Ambassadors are officially appointed by the Alumni Association of Lakehead University's Board of Directors.
Current Ambassadors are located in Guelph, Hamilton, Kingston, Kitchener, Sarnia, Sudbury, Waterloo and Windsor.
