Presidential Ambassadors

Presidential Ambassadors have been a tradition at Marian University since 2015, when we launched the program with an inaugural group of 14 students. Today, the program has grown to include 32 students who are among Marian's best and brightest.

Students selected for this honor represent the university at prestigious campus and community events. They meet and network with alumni, community leaders, business executives, and other friends of the university at these functions, promoting Marian University's mission, vision, values, and traditions.
