OPAL Ambassadors aim to increase awareness, knowledge, and skills necessary to create change and engage in productive conversations about diversity, inclusion, and mutual respect. OPAL Ambassadors are diverse student leaders who contribute to the goal of an inclusive campus community by educating on issues of diversity and inclusion among their peers and by helping to create a living, learning, and working environment that is welcoming for members of all identities.

- Working with OPAL to plan and facilitate workshops and educational opportunities that address a wide range of social justice, diversity, and inclusion issues and topics.
- Providing opportunities to develop effective leadership and cross-cultural communication skills that can be applied to interpersonal, academic and professional settings.
- Seeking out opportunities for collaboration with student organizations and campus partners.
