Triton Parent & Family Ambassador Program
A unique opportunity for parents and family members to get involved at UC San Diego.
|Parent & Family Programs, Undergraduate Admissions and UCSD Alumni partnered to create a new program to help with recruitment, yield, involvement, retention, and philanthropic support. The newly created program, Triton Parent & Family Ambassador, began in 2014 and is operated Parent & Family Programs Office.
Note: We give credit to the University of San Diego for their parent program, enabling UC San Diego to create the Triton Parent & Family Ambassador Program.
Ambassadors are supporters of the University of California, San Diego! As a Triton Parent & Family Ambassador, you will enthusiastically:
- Assist in building the UC San Diego Triton Family, locally and regionally;
- Engage with parents of prospective students;
- Connect with parents of enrolled students;
- Serve as an informed agent of the university; and
- Assist with supporting events
We know that our families are very busy, so the level of participation is as much or as little as you can do. There are a variety of ways to help and opportunities exist on campus at UC San Diego, locally or regionally; ideally near you. Examples of activities include:
- Conducting welcome calls to admitted UC San Diego students from home.
- Attending admissions receptions.
- Participating on parent panels.
- Volunteering at Triton Day or Transfer Triton Day.
- Assisting with Summer Send-Offs.
- Volunteering at Family Weekend, Siblings Day, Triton Family 5K Run/Walk, Commencement and Orientation.
- Hosting events at your home to engage families with the university.
In addition, Triton Parent & Family Ambassadors set an example for all UC San Diego families. The university strives for Ambassadors to make a meaningful philanthropic gift to the Parents Fund, your student’s College, your student’s academic department, or an area on campus which interests you.
