CPH Undergraduate Student Ambassadors

About us

The CPH Undergraduate Student Ambassadors represent the College of Public Health and University of Iowa through its own students. As ambassadors, you can assist with fun recruitment events and activities and get to share your passion for public health and the University of Iowa while gaining valuable experience and growing your interpersonal communication and leadership skills.

How to join

We recruit in the early fall for each new academic school year. Applications and interviews will be required.

Polishing your skills

Ambassadors practice their skills in public speaking, event planning, and communication as they interact with CPH guests. These skills will help you with your academic success and stay with you as you embark on your next adventure after college.

How to apply

For questions about the application and/or selection process, contact Lexie Just at lexie-just@uiowa.edu.

Hi! My name is Montala (mon-tay-la) and I am a first year in the College of Public Health on the bachelor of science track. In addition to public health, I’m also on the pre-physician assistant track. My sole interest has been in epidemiology, but recently I’ve found myself interested in community and behavioral health. I’m super excited to explore all the paths in public health!
