Join the Diplomats

The Warrington Diplomat program is comprised of the top highly committed and motivated 30-40 junior, senior, and graduate business and accounting student leaders tasked with representing the Warrington College of Business. As the official ambassadors, the Diplomats are involved in public relations events on and off campus and act as resource people regarding college policies, procedures, and programs to new and current students. The visibility, training, and experience gained as a Diplomat are invaluable assets in the professional development process.

The Warrington Diplomats serve the college by giving tours to prospective students, hosting college events, showcasing college resources, and connecting students with personal and professional development opportunities.
