Founded in 2012, the mission of the Presidential Ambassador program is to support Towson University’s strategic plan by educating students on the importance of philanthropy and encouraging students to make their own donation to Towson University.
Working with the Division of University Advancement, Presidential Ambassadors spearhead the Gold and Black Giving Back Campaign, the student giving campaign that launched in November 2014. During 2014-2015, student donations attributed to over $22,000 for the university from over 600 students.
Presidential Ambassadors oversee student fundraising events each year including events like The Great Pumpkin Smash, Doc Hug-a-Thon, Capture the Flag and Paws for Thanks. The Presidential Ambassadors utilize these events to engage students on campus by fostering a sense of pride, loyalty and tradition while educating them on the importance of private donations to the university.
Presidential Ambassadors interact regularly with Towson University’s internal and external constituents including university deans and staff, alumni, parents, corporate sponsors and board members.
