The Diversity Ambassador Program encourages students to take an active role on campus and promote awareness toward issues of diversity, equity, inclusivity, and social justice.  This program provide students with the opportunity to serve as resources and mentors to their peers as it relates to creating an inclusive and welcoming environment at Daemen College while representing the Center for Diversity & Inclusion at open houses, orientations, and other campus wide programs. These students work as our student employees, hosting office hours in the CDI and create trainings, events, and programming across campus to encourage conversations around social justice with their peers.
