Parents Ambassador Program

The Ambassador Program serves to nurture a strong community of Boston University parents. The goal of Parent Ambassadors is to keep the BU spirit strong on campus and at home. Ambassadors are supported by the Dean of Students Office.

How to get involved as an Ambassador

  • Attend Summer Orientation (June/July) to connect with parents of incoming freshmen and answer questions and share your experience as a current BU parent


  • Host a BU Parent reception for current parents, Parents Program staff, and Dean of Students staff to allow current parents the opportunity to connect with members of the BU community off-campus.


  • Host Alternative Spring Breaks groups (March) in your home (or on site if permitted) during Spring Break for lunch, dinner, or a snack. You could also host a group of volunteers for an overnight stay en route to their final destination, so they arrive well-rested and ready to serve.


  • Attend Admitted Student Admissions receptions (April) to share your personal BU experience with prospective parents in your area.
