Welcome to the Student Ambassador Page!

Our Mission Statement

Supporting Berkeley City College to promote student success, provide our diverse community with educational opportunities, and transform lives.

The Berkeley City College Student-Ambassador Program is made up of students who are selected from a varied pool of applicants to represent the college’s diverse community. Our program is an extension of the Campus Life Department. Our focus is to support new and continuing students through the enrollment process into the Peralta Community College District system and provide educational outreach services to local high schools, middle schools, and community partners.

Our Ambassadors serve as the liaisons for the college and community, and they collaborate to support Berkeley City College’s mission to promote educational opportunity, student success, and diversity.
