The DCS Ambassadors are a student organization that represents the Division of Continuing Studies to members of the community, guests of the Division, and prospective students.
The Ambassadors’ commitment to professional development, service, and leadership not only reflects on the students of our division, but demonstrates the depth and conscientiousness a degree from the Division of Continuing Studies provides.
The Ambassadors developed and implemented an Alumni Networking Event & Silent Auction to raise money for DCS student scholarships. From last year’s auction they were able to award two $500 scholarships this year and they hope to be able to award even more next year.
If you are interested in helping support student scholarships please come to the silent auction on Saturday, March 10, 2018, from 11:30 A.M. to 1:00 P.M. in CPACS Commons. You will have an opportunity to bid on some amazing items and meet the DCS Student Ambassadors.

Here are what a couple of the ambassador said about their experiences.
“I’m so happy I decided to become a DCS Ambassador. Being an Ambassador gave me the opportunity to meet new people, take a leadership role, and participate in activities I normally wouldn’t have tried. The DCS staff are totally committed to making the group successful and the College of Public Affairs and Community Service has been very generous with their support. Thank you for making my last year as a DCS student so fulfilling and enjoyable. It’s been a pleasure to serve and represent the Division of Continuing Studies.” -- Rhonda Sheibal-Carver
“I have been a member of the DCS Student Ambassadors since the inception of the group in the Fall of 2014. By participating in extra-curricular activities such as the Ambassadors I have met remarkable people, been involved in fun activities, learned about the university and been able to represent UNO in an interesting and positive way.” -- John Focht
