The VolCorps Program is an umbrella organization that brings together:
- Ambassadors – Members work primarily as the official tour guides of the university.
- ME4UT – Members work with diversity recruitment programs.
- For more information, please email Julian Wright at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Volunteer Team – Members work primarily with prospective student athletes.
- For more information, please email Kelly Bryan at email@example.com.
Students who are VolCorps Program members work with admission recruitment programs and provide support for the Undergraduate Admissions Office.
The Ambassadors are the principal student liaisons for prospective students and their parents visiting the UT campus. These students play an integral role by aiding in the recruitment of the best and brightest future Vols through the UT Campus Visit Program. The Ambassadors lead daily campus tours for visiting families and giving a student’s perspective of what it’s like to be a true Volunteer at the University of Tennessee.
