Who are we?

The Office of Inclusion, Equity, and Diversity began this exciting program in 2016 for students who aspire to assist with the Office’s initiatives. Our Ambassadors are student who are committed to learning about the the importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion, and are willing to promote and encourage other students in the Auburn community to work towards becoming more multiculturally competent.
 
By participating in this program, students agree to attend weekly meetings, attend trainings, workshops, and campus events to increase their knowledge, awareness, and skills regarding diversity on Auburn's campus. This program is designed to create opportunities for students to actively engage in activities to advance diversity and inclusion. The program provides avenues for selected students to facilitate discussions, provide peer diversity training and host diversity related programming such as our Coffee Talks and Diversity Movie Nights.

Vision:

The Student Ambassadors for the Office of Inclusion, Equity and Diversity within the College of Sciences and Mathematics believe that true innovation results when individuals of different races, ethnicities, genders, abilities, status, nationalities, religious affiliations, sexual orientations, and socioeconomic backgrounds collectively work together to solve problems. We create an environment where everyone’s differences are not only acknowledged but celebrated under the belief that we are all unique and have something to contribute. Through the continuous improvement of diverse representation at all levels and the creation of an inclusive environment that fosters intellectual creativity, our Ambassadors are committed to promoting peer-to-peer engagement through various events to increase awareness of social injustices. We understand and seek to diminish inequities on Auburn’s Campus in the STEM fields to help individuals grow both intellectually and personally through meaningful diverse experiences.

Mission: 

COSAM OIED Student Ambassadors seek to bring awareness to OIED services and programs; encourage interest in STEM fields in students from all backgrounds grades k-12; and promote an inclusive environment for all students. Through these actions, the ultimate mission of Ambassadors is to function as liaisons, collaborators, and representatives of OIED and the diverse COSAM student populace. As such, Ambassadors is a link between the Office, Auburn students, grade school students, and also an extension of the COSAM OIED mission.
