City Ambassadors

The Sacramento State City Ambassadors is a program of the advocacy branch of ASI, and more specifically an initiative out of the ASI Office of Governmental Affairs, comprised of Sacramento State students who attend a variety of community events, such as City Council meetings and Chambers of Commerce, to bring about a higher awareness of higher education issues. This committee also heads up efforts in registering Sac State students to vote.

We provide workshops and training sessions that teach students more about the issues and for what ASI stands. Students learn how to coordinate visits to their local representatives to ensure that their representatives know where they stand on issues of higher education.


The mission of the Sacramento State City Ambassadors is to inform, educate, and involve students in civic engagement while bringing awareness to community issues and bringing higher education issues to the community.
