Foundation ambassadors are chosen from among student leaders at Utah Valley University to represent the University at prominent events, where they serve as the face of UVU and its students. Ambassadors also welcome visitors to campus in the Alumni Center and conduct campus tours for important visitors and returning alumni. They help tell the story of the University and raise awareness of UVU’s academic excellence.

The Foundation Board awards a scholarship to each ambassador, and each scholarship is named for a past chair of the Foundation Board, honoring that chair for his or her service to the University. Since a new chairperson takes over every three years, the ambassador program will expand by one position every three years.

The Foundation Ambassador program was established in 2012. Each summer, the new group of Foundation Ambassadors gathers for a retreat where they receive training for their roles during the upcoming school year. Their participation in the program helps prepare them to serve in their professions and as leaders in their communities.
