The College of Pharmacy (COP) Dean's Ambassador Program was founded in 2009 at the Fort Lauderdale/Davie Campus. In 2015, the program was expanded to the Palm Beach, and Puerto Rico Regional Campuses. Student ambassadors are selected based on academic achievement, Shark pride, and commitment to excellence. The Program serves to further engage students in representing the college and university among alumni, preceptors, constituents, affiliated organizations, professional communities, and the general public. Specifically, the Program focuses on further developing students' professionalism through training and mentoring in leadership, networking, presentation and teamwork, as well as business protocol to better prepare them as future role models and leaders in healthcare. Ambassadors participate with alumni mentors to explore and implement new initiatives to increase and better engage our COP alumni allowing them a window to their career roles as future alumni. It's an exciting time to be a "Shark Ambassador" at the COP!
