Recruitment Committee members work as a team and collaboratively with recruitment initiatives in the Undergraduate Academic Affairs Office. Recruitment Ambassadors represent what it means to be a Hokie in the College of Science by participating in projects and events that target future students. Activities include attending recruitment events, talking with prospective students and parents, assisting in developing new recruitment materials, and other creative recruitment opportunities.
The College of Science has over 33,000 alumni located across the United States and around the world. It is in the college’s best interest to engage and inform this constituency of the university. The Alumni Relations Team of the College’s Ambassadors will assist in this engagement. Working with the Director of Alumni Relations for the college, the team will assist with information gathering to include in the college’s e-newsletter, serve as hosts to on-campus events, aid with events in planning and on-site arrangements, and a number of other projects.
The Outreach Committee will be focused on unique projects that will ultimately assist the College of Science in actively reaching out to the community. These projects will be determined by the committee. Events that have been organized in the past are high school student enrichment events and Ut Prosim events.
