The University of Twente
Makes a difference! How about you?

AMBASSADORS

The UT ambassadors network consists of alumni and relations who fill leading positions in the corporate world, at UT-spinoffs (in particular) and in government. These ambassadors are role models for our students and alumni.

The Executive Board of the UT utilizes the ambassadors network to maintain and improve the reputation of the university. By utilizing the ambassadors network the university manages to stay in touch with the social developments and the university can draw from a very broad pool of expertise. 

The ambassadors network meets several times a year to discuss strategy and to ensure the ambassadors can keep in touch with developments at the university.
