Undergraduate Research Ambassadors


The Undergraduate Research Ambassadors work to inspire broader engagement in undergraduate research by educating and serving the Texas A&M University community. The program began in 2013 with our inaugural class of 12 Ambassadors. New Ambassadors are chosen each spring.

What Do Ambassadors Do?

  • Represent LAUNCH at research, recruiting, and outreach events such as:
    • Undergraduate Research Expo
    • Getting Started in Research workshops
    • Mentoring Undergraduate Researchers workshops
  • Give presentations to students organizations
  • Meet with administrators, faculty, and prospective students
