The Student Ambassador Program recruits qualified students to represent Davidson County Community College in a number of initiatives, serving as role models and mentors to all students. These trained student representatives serve as role models and mentors to all students and provide the campus with an additional resource of student leaders. They assist new and current students in the admissions/registration process, represent the college in outreach efforts, assist in campus wide events, and promote the image of DCCC. Student Ambassadors are positive, enthusiastic, and well-informed representatives of the student body, who are interested in working with faculty, staff and students to promote the college’s programs and services.
