The student ambassadors act as mentors for newcomers and offer guidance to prospective students. They are a great resource for students in need of direction as they are willing to share their own experiences and act as references.

LaShae D. Rolle, M.P.H., and Ph.D. candidate in Prevention Science and Community Health Division saw this program as an excellent opportunity to learn more about DPHS, meet new people, and answer questions from incoming students in any way possible.

“I am eager to share my experiences with future students and help them navigate the sometimes daunting process of choosing an MPH program. For those considering the University of Miami, my passion and expertise are sure to be a valuable resource. I am dedicated to helping incoming students feel at ease and confident in their decision, so they too can embark on a successful career in public health. I can't wait to connect with you!” Emilie Brown.

The six new student ambassadors were selected for their initiative to reach out and connect with prospective and incoming students, as well as their innovative approaches to attracting potential applicants and contributing to DPHS's social media efforts.
