Texas Tech University

Department Ambassadors


The ambassador program is a professional organization of students who will work to serve the department of Kinesiology and Sport Management. We commit to implementing and maintaining a clear line of communication between the staff, faculty, and students. We will represent the department in all university and community endeavors while working to promote the program. We work closely with all department faculty and staff thus increasing our opportunity to network and learn on a higher level. The ambassadors are tasked with projects such as hosting prospective faculty members, recruiting undergraduate and graduate students, facilitating health and fitness related events, and much more. As an organization, we aim to provide ample opportunity for ambassadors to ensure that they are well prepared for their future. 

The organization is comprised of a combination of kinesiology and sport management and has upper-level postions including president, event coordinator, treasurer, service chair and social media chair.

Applications go out the second week of February and are due the Friday before Spring Break. If you are interested in applying, please reach out to Ambassador Supervisor Chad Smith.

AmbassadorAmbassador Supervisor

The ambassador supervisor must be a faculty or staff member from within the department who will oversee all program decisions, events, and meetings. He/she will serve as the direct line of communication between the departmental staff and the ambassador program. The supervisor will also aid the head ambassador in filtering candidate applications before they are sent to the admissions panel. Due to the nature of our financial infrastructure the ambassador supervisor will be responsible for all budgets, purchases, and records pertaining to the ambassador bank account in conjuncture with the financial chair. They will also work with the department purchasing power representative when requesting departmental funding. The ambassador supervisor must approve all suspensions and terminations. 

Selection Committee

The Selection Committee shall be made up of the faculty supervisor, all current officers, and potentially 1 or more other Kinesiology and Sport Management faculty members. All faculty and staff employed by the department are eligible to sit on the committee. All applications will be reviewed and interviews will be held for all finalist candidates. A majority vote must be achieved before a candidate is offered a position. 

*Ambassador Requirements:

All ambassadors must be a Kinesiology or Sport Management student taking at least 12 hours (9 for graduate students) per semester at Texas Tech University. They also must be in good standing with the university and maintain a 3.0 cumulative GPA. Once accepted, a $25 membership fee must be paid as well.

All positions will be offered under a one-year contract. Readmission is at the discretion of the faculty supervisor and selection committee (recommendations will be taken into consideration). MOST of our communication will occur via email and by phone; however, we will have mandatory face-to-face meetings approximately two times a month. All ambassadors are required to attend training upon admission to the program. Please note that you are required to attend all events under your area of responsibility. Once accepted, you will obtain the organization Bylaws that will include more information on what is expected with your role.
