COM President and the 2021-2022 President's Ambassadors

COM President, Dr. Warren Nichols and the 2021-2022 President’s Ambassadors

Whether working directly with students or our community, our Presidential Ambassadors are by far our most effective advocate, and I look forward to working closely with them during the year.

Dr. Warren Nichols

The Presidential Ambassador Program at College of the Mainland is a leadership training program for a group of selected, highly skilled students who work to represent the positive image of the Institution and President Nichols, as well as share our mission and culture with alumni, donors, friends and community at designated events and activities.

COM provides rewarding benefits to our Ambassadors in return for their service. These students will experience a variety of professional development opportunities in which to learn and practice networking skills, communication skills, business etiquette, leadership, event planning, community engagement, hosting distinguished COM visitors, and more. Many Presidential Ambassadors will also receive a letter of reference from President Nichols.
