Nontraditional & Commuter Student Center


bridging campus and community

Established in 1975 as a special interest group, the Ambassadors of Missouri Western State University serve as a vital link between the university and the St. Joseph community. Through activities and programs, Ambassadors strive to increase the community’s awareness of the educational, cultural and financial benefits that Missouri Western brings to the greater St. Joseph area.

Scholarship Programs

The greatest growth in college student populations is among adults who are pursuing educational goals which have been delayed or those who desire to seek new career opportunities. The Ambassadors have selected nontraditional students as its primary focus and established a scholarship fund specifically targeted for them.

Each year, the Ambassadors hold Night at the Ritz to raise funds for scholarships.

Membership Benefits

Membership in the MWSU Ambassadors offers numerous opportunities to each person, such as:

  • Personal Development

Meetings and Dues

Three general membership luncheon meetings are held each academic year. All meetings are at 11:30 a.m. in Spratt Hall Enright Room, 214. Members are invited to join the Executive Board, which plans the luncheons and the Night at the Ritz.

Dues are $20 per year and are payable each September as the year corresponds with the academic calendar.
