What is a Brand Ambassador?

UNI Brand Ambassadors are a team of professionals located throughout campus who you can turn to with questions and ideas relating to the University of Northern Iowa brand. They also can help educate you about the new brand and how it applies to your area.

See below for a current list of UNI Brand Ambassadors. If your unit is not listed, you can learn more about the brand by attending one of the general brand education sessions as noted below. Please reach out to brand@uni.edu with questions. 

If you would like to become a Brand Ambassador or recommend someone who would be a great addition to the team, let us know.

BRAND AMBASSADOR TRAINING

Educational Sessions

Many brand ambassadors will offer education sessions that can provide an overview and speak to how the brand will specifically apply to your area. If you do not have a brand ambassador (see above) -- or just want another opportunity to learn and ask questions -- you can also register for general brand education sessions led by the Brand Support Team.

Register by clicking on a link session above.

University Relations Assistance

All other units without brand ambassador representation will be assisted by the Office of University Relations.
