Ambassadors for Community Engagement (ACEs)
Interested in learning more about the community? Maybe you want to become an expert in a specified area like youth programming or Museums & the Arts. This could be a great opportunity for you to join the Community Engagement team as a student ACE. For our inaugural year, there are 9 dedicated ACEs representing areas they are each passionate about. Connecting with community partners, students, staff, and faculty is allowing them to grow not only as individuals but capacity building as well. For more information on the 2016-2017 ACEs, please follow this link.
Civic Ambassadors is an Iowa Campus Compact sponsored program through which 2 Coe students are nominated to participate in leadership development and networking with other Civic Ambassadors across the state. Benefits of being an ambassador include training opportunities geared towards improving leadership skills and knowledge of best practices in civic engagement. Ambassadors also receive support for their campus projects, including planning resources, collaboration opportunities and funding sources. Ambassadors are recognized in IACC press releases and newsletters. Nominations are made in each year in the spring by the Center for Community Engagement. Ambassadors begin the program the following fall.
