What are the benefits of being a CFANS Ambassador?
There are many! You'll have fun and make friendships with other enthusiastic CFANS students. You'll have a positive impact on students considering the U of M and alumni and donors in the CFANS community. You'll develop leadership skills, public speaking skills, and a volunteer experience that's valuable for your resume. You'll also grow a strong network within the CFANS, University, and Minnesota communities.

Your involvement is an annual commitment that takes place during fall and spring semesters. There will be an opportunity for renewal in the group each year. The time commitment is about 8–10 hours per month, plus special events. Mandatory meetings are held once each month during the academic year.
