Join the Diplomats

The Warrington Diplomat program is comprised of the top highly committed and motivated 28-35 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 value of the Warrington Diplomats lies in their ability to create and reinvent ideas, programs, and services that address the needs of undergraduate business students, alumni, and interested parties. All Warrington Diplomats have the opportunity to gain leadership experience and give back to the college by serving the Warrington community. New ideas and initiatives are welcomed and will be integrated into the existing Warrington Diplomat services.

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