The Central Carolina Community College Ambassadors are student leaders that represent many facets of the college and local community. Students chosen to serve as Ambassadors will be offered many opportunities to engage in collegiate affairs. Candidates are nominated by a faculty or staff member and confirmed by formal selection committee. Once selected, students are required to attend a leadership development course during the summer semester and serve for one complete academic year. As compensation, students are provided free in-state tuition and fees, plus all necessary uniforms for that year.
