Ambassadors for the Africana Studies Program at UCF are passionate about history, culture and community. They are active at the university and engaged with local youth, providing mentorship to young students and promoting the importance of Africana Studies.
In addition to providing a face for the program, the ambassadors contribute to its leadership, generating ideas in an advisory role.
According to Program Director Anthony Major, the ambitions of the program and its ambassadors are the same as that of the university, “to become more inclusive and diverse… to provide students with the knowledge of self, and the knowledge of other cultures, so they can succeed in this global society and help make this a better world.”
