Become an Ambassador

Luddy Ambassadors talk to high school students, parents, and current IU students about our school. They host students who visit Luddy, and also go to high schools and events like robotics competitions.

By becoming an Ambassador, you’ll build your leadership and communication skills, add to your resume, network with students and employers, and give back to your school.
