The Diversity Ambassadors student organization was created in 2009 in an effort to increase engineering awareness and to assist with the LSU College of Engineering diversity recruitment and retention efforts. The Diversity Ambassadors encourage K-12 students to become engineers by interacting with students at schools in the Baton Rouge area and surrounding communities. Diversity Ambassadors serve as role models, mentors, and tutors while conducting engineering demonstrations, hands-on activities, and discipline talks. Diversity Ambassadors are comprised of undergraduate and graduate engineering students from various engineering disciplines.
