Service is a highly valued professional philosophy within the Division of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources (DASNR).  Nonexempt employees are actively encouraged to complete the Ambassador Program.  This program has been developed to enhance the knowledge and skills of staff who play a critical, front-line role within a unit.  Successful completion illustrates a desire for continuous learning and improvement and a commitment to service.

This program consists of 30 hours of courses.  The 15 hours of required core courses focus on basic functions of all employees regardless of title.  The 15 hours of specially marked electives are selected by the employee to meet particular job needs and interests.  Ambassador certification requires completion within a two-year time frame.
