Mission Statement - What keeps us focused

As Lincoln Memorial University Lincoln Ambassadors we dedicate ourselves to serving our campus communities as ideal inspirational representatives for student life and the University Mission. We promote in our daily student and social lives the encouragement of enthusiastic, informed, and connected participation in all communities as driven by both the tradition and reputation of the institution. We enhance life throughout the region with a positive individual and group example of service leadership to the university and community at large.



Frequently asked questions:


"How do I get to be a Lincoln Ambassador?"


The Office of Student Services sends requests for LA recommendations to LMU faculty and staff mid-way through the spring semester each year, after which we generally receive about fifty recommendations. We send an application packet to each nominee. That packet includes an application, a request for two written recommendations, and a request for the student to choose one of two LA training dates. Upon receiving these application back, we schedule an interview with each interested student. We then conduct our two separate student leadership trainings before the end of the semester.


Semester Requirements: Maintain a 3.0 cumulative GPA, 25 or more hours of community service as a Lincoln Ambassador.
