The MAFE Student Ambassadors

The Maverick Advantage Faculty Engagement (MAFE) Student Ambassadors represent an incredible group of individuals from various academic disciplines. Their crucial mission is to engage with faculty members, ensuring that the Maverick Advantage (MA) is seamlessly integrated into different courses. Moreover, they are dedicated to spreading awareness about the discovery and enrollment processes for MA-endorsed courses.

 

Being an Ambassador provides an opportunity to develop essential skills, such as leadership, public speaking, communication, and teamwork. Through their involvement in presentations, events, and outreach projects, these Ambassadors are uniquely positioned to refine these skills. It's truly inspiring to see how they work together to accomplish their goals and make a meaningful impact on the academic community.
