African American Student Center

Diversity Ambassador Program

Founded in 1999, the Diversity Ambassador Program is an academic program that supports Cal Poly Pomona’s mission to advance knowledge by linking theory and practice to prepare students for lifelong learning and careers in a changing multicultural world. The program was formed to educate Cal Poly Pomona students about the significance of the Civil Rights Movement. 

Diversity Ambassadors are students who travel on an alternative educational spring break. Our goal is to have students of diverse racial, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds travel to the east coast of the United States of America to visit historical monuments, museums, Black colleges, churches, and institutions related to the emergence of the Civil Rights Movement.

The program strives to cultivate student leaders who are focused on social injustice and bettering their community through their involvement.
