Ambassador Program

If you’re passionate about UT and about finding new ways UT can impact your community—consider becoming an Everywhere You Look, UT Ambassador!

How We Work Together

Connect: Our ambassadors link their communities to UT. They encourage community members to connect with the people, programs and resources available throughout the statewide University system. They’re up to date on the latest University news and information and meet regularly with UT System leadership. 

Inspire: Our ambassadors share ideas for UT-sponsored events, initiatives and partnerships in their communities. They help shape the UT System brand, voice and tone as well as marketing and advertising campaigns through participation in surveys and focus groups.

Promote: Our ambassadors endorse the brand! They wear campus colors, host tailgates, hang posters, distribute yard signs, emcee events and take to social media! When we ship them T-shirts to distribute, they blanket their communities. We can’t tell the story of our great University without their help. 

Become an Ambassador

We’re looking for ambassadors to represent each of Tennessee’s 95 counties. Nominate yourself or someone you know today!
