Members of the community are invited to participate in a new program that is being launched by the Allan Hancock College Foundation.
The Community Ambassador Program is a leadership opportunity designed specifically for community influencers and local business executives to provide them with an overview of campus operations, programs and student success. The inaugural class will cultivate relationships between the campus and members of the community.
“We are very excited to be launching this program on behalf of the college,” said Valerie Moya, president of the Allan Hancock College Foundation Board of Directors. “Ambassadors will be given a high-level overview of college programs and operations. The curriculum is similar to the Chamber Leadership program and is ideal for any leader interested in learning more about Hancock.”
The ambassadors will meet on-campus for six half-day sessions starting in August through July 2018. Each session will highlight a different area of the college. Ambassadors will get an executive-level introduction to the college through workshops with various academic departments and campus organizations. They will also get exclusive access to the college’s special events and activities.
Among the planned sessions: a tour of the prestigious Public Safety Complex at the Lompoc Valley Center, a classroom visit in both our credit and noncredit departments, and the opportunity to meet student leaders on campus.
The ambassadors will be selected through an application and interview process. To view the tentative schedule or apply for the program visit the Allan Hancock College Foundation’s website at http://www.hancockcollege.edu/foundation/ and download the application. The first session is set for August 2017.
