Become a Skule™ Ambassador

Skule™ Ambassadors are essential to keeping your class connected with Skule™. We are looking for alumni volunteers who keep in touch with their classmates and are willing to act as spokespeople for their graduating class. Skule™ Ambassadors work closely with the Alumni Relations team to suggest possible activities for Spring Reunion, contact members of their class and encourage their classmates to support the Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering.

If you are interested in volunteering as a Skule™ Ambassador, please complete the online form or contact Stephanie Ordon at stephanie.ordon@ecf.utoronto.ca or 416-978-4941.
