A student’s initial experience with a college is critical to their decision on whether to attend. This connection is most impactful when it comes from a peer. Using peer to peer connections, Student Ambassadors share their experiences as current college students to give prospective students, parents, and families a glimpse into life at IVC. Housed in the Office of Outreach and Recruitment, the Student Ambassadors assist with campus tours and assist at outreach events at IVC’s service area high schools to share their student experiences at IVC. Student Ambassadors provide connection, engagement, and build community among new and prospective students to contribute to their transition to college and success at IVC.


Student Ambassadors are returning Irvine Valley College students (with a minimum of 24 units and who have attended IVC for at least two semesters). All Ambassadors will be student employees of Irvine Valley College and subject to a criminal background check.


Supervised by the Director of Outreach, Recruitment, and Student Support Services, Student Ambassadors will be trained to assist with campus tours and college nights. Ambassadors will be asked to follow the instructions below on how to apply.

Representative Duties and Responsibilities:

Each member of the Student Ambassador team will assist outreach efforts by connecting with prospective students both on and off campus. Student Ambassadors will offer insights and basic information about life as a student at IVC. Student Ambassadors will be expected to attend regular trainings, demonstrate competency around issues of diversity and multiculturalism, and communicate effectively across a range of different audiences. They will share their experiences at IVC in a positive, professional, and welcoming manner. Student Ambassadors will assist with campus tours, assist at campus events, and be the “pulse” of the campus to share student related issues and concerns.

IVC is represented at College Nights at high schools in the IVC service area. Student Ambassadors will assist this outreach function by sharing their student experience with prospective students, parents, and families. They will provide peer to peer engagement and connection to IVC.

Throughout the week, the Outreach department responds to a variety of requests for campus tours. Student Ambassadors will assist in these tours by connecting directly with students and families. By sharing their student experience, they will help their peers understand the ins and outs of the campus and give the student perspective. This is a key function that connects students initially to IVC.

Leadership development is a key component of this program and Student Ambassadors will be expected to conduct themselves as representatives of the college at all times. Ambassadors will attend leadership development workshops and activities to help build skillsets that are integral to academic and career success.
