COVID-19: News and Campus Updates

Student Advancement Ambassadors

Student Advancement Ambassadors plays a critical role in supporting the successes of UNC students. Student Advancement Ambassadors, or "SAAs", engage with UNC's alumni and donors throughout the academic year. SAAs work in the University Advancement offices, assisting with alumni and university events, marketing & communications initiatives, and fundraising programs.

Calling from: UNC!

Many of our SAAs are employed through UNC's Annual Giving program, and contact UNC's alumni and donors to connect with them and invite them to support UNC with their philanthropy. When we call, text, or email, we hope you'll answer, because when you do, you join a growing community of donors who are proudly supporting UNC students and programs.


Who are SAAs?

Student Advancement Ambassadors (SAAs) are proud, frontline UNC student representatives. We contact alumni, parents and friends across the nation to discuss philanthropic opportunities and invite your gift of support. We also reach out about alumni events, to say "Thank You", and to share special announcements about the university.


When do SAAs work?

SAAs are employed through both Fall and Spring semesters. Most communications with donors take place in the afternoon or early evening. If you see a call or text from a 970 area code, we hope you'll respond!


Where are you located?

You'll see SAAs all over campus, including at Alumni Association tailgates, Blue & Gold Club outings, alumni networking events and greeting you when you visit the University Advancement team in Carter Hall. SAAs are full-time UNC students who love being a part of the Bear family.
