2023–24 ASU Space Student Ambassadors

September 28, 2023

ASU Space is introducing its second cohort of ASU Space Student Ambassadors, welcoming 17 Arizona State University undergraduate students from a variety of disciplines. The program continues to bring together outstanding current students with a passion for space to serve as representatives of ASU Space and develop their leadership skills.

The ASU Space Student Ambassador program is a competitive ASU undergraduate leadership and professional development program open to current ASU undergraduate students in their third year or beyond. As ambassadors, selected students represent ASU Space to fellow students, faculty and staff, as well as external organizations and industry partners. It is a joint effort among several ASU groups, including the Interplanetary Initiative, NewSpace, the School of Earth and Space Exploration, the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering and the Thunderbird School of Global Management

The 2023–24 cohort of ASU Space Student Ambassadors represent a variety of schools and 11 different majors from across the university, including political science, engineering, technological leadership, business, astrophysics, robotics, and Earth and space exploration. This assortment of disciplines is reflected in the ambassadors' academic interests, which range from developing new space technologies to investigating the ethical implications of space exploration.

As part of the program, ambassadors will also have the opportunity to build professional relationships, attend conferences, volunteer at community events, sharpen their communication skills and network with space industry professionals. While doing so, they will also learn from each other and explore how their different academic focus areas can contribute to the growing space industry.

At Arizona State University, we believe a deeply transdisciplinary approach is needed to create the social and systems-level solutions that will pave our way as an interplanetary species.
