Join the Triton Parent & Family Ambassador Program, a volunteer program geared to enhance your UC San Diego experience. If interested, Triton Parent & Family Ambassadors can also philanthropically get involved with the Parent Leadership Council.
Prospective and incoming parents or family members who wish to learn "the ropes" from a current parent/family serving as an Ambassador, can request for such a contact. Our Ambassadors are "experts" of their own experience and that of their student. This one-on-one connection may help to better understand UC San Diego for you and your student. Please regard this connection as a resource and not as the final answer to your questions.
- Check out the list to request to speak to a specific ambassador, if you want to.
- Fill out the form to tell us more about what you need.
- Once we receive your request, we will contact the Ambassador first to confirm their availability.
- Please allow up to 48 hours to return your request. If you have questions, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
