The Neighborhood Ambassadors function under the direction and guidance of the Off-Campus Area Coordinator, through the Office of Student Life. The Ambassadors’ primary responsibilities consist of serving as a liaison between students, Santa Clara University, City of Santa Clara residents and City of Santa Clara officials. This position allows greater transparency between SCU administration, Campus Safety, the Santa Clara Police Department, and students. We work with administrators of Student Life to discuss how this position allows us to make improvements in the community. Additionally, we work to further develop the community by serving off-campus students in larger capacities, which includes engaging in the transition to full adulthood and self-dependence.
