Community Ambassador Team

The Community Ambassador Team, formerly known as Community Liaisons, is a team of student leaders who care about connecting off campus students to their neighborhood and campus communities. CAT members are peer educators trained on a variety of resources available to students that reside off campus, whether they are living in the surrounding community or commuting from home. The goal of the CAT program is to promote a safe and cooperative community environment in the off campus neighborhoods and provide programming opportunities for students living off campus.

The Community Ambassador Team will work to plan and assist in programs that will help develop a sense of community and give off campus students the tools to make smart choices. They help improve the quality of life in the off campus community by bringing students together and giving them the opportunity to learn skills needs to succeed outside the classroom.
