Current Student Ambassadors
The DVC Student Ambassador program was created to help connect potential and current students to DVC campus resources. The Student Ambassador team works together under the direction of the Outreach/Relations with Schools Office to represent Diablo Valley College to prospective, new and returning students and their parents at events on campus and in the community. These student leaders help promote the many opportunities available at DVC by attending college nights at local high schools, leading campus tours, assisting with events, and making valuable connections with future and current students at Welcome Services. Maybe you have already seen Student Ambassadors on campus wearing their dark green polo shirts and friendly smiles!
