Programs for Leadership and Service Education

Meet the AOC returning student leaders!

AOC coordinators help plan and facilitate the Ambassadors of Change program. During the summer, the coordinators help decide the program components and plan different aspects of the schedule.  The 2013 student coordinators are Evan Zahn and Emily Seibert.

AOC team builders (everyone else below) are returning students who participated in the AOC program when they were new students.  In pairs, they lead a small group of new students throughout the week.  While AOC ambassadors will have the chance to meet close to 90 new friends, the two team builders in their small group will be right there all week to answer questions and lead the way!
