Mission and Purpose
The purpose of the CCI Ambassadors Program is to assist the College of Communication and Information with student recruitment, alumni relations, community outreach, student retention and college events, and to help the college tell its story to a variety of important constituencies. Prospective students should feel free to contact CCI Ambassadors to request a campus tour, learn more about the college or university as a whole, or simply discuss communication as a potential career. The Land Ambassador program is funded by CCI graduate and Jupiter Entertainment CEO Stephen Land and his wife, Nancy.

The people are what makes UT great. I have learned so much through the experiences the College of Communication and Information has set forth for me. The College makes valiant efforts to get students involved and the professors truly do want to see students succeed.
