MTI Ambassadors

An Ambassador program was started at MTI the fall of 1998. One purpose of this group is to make visitors feel welcome and to take them, individually or in small groups, on campus tours. The MTI Ambassadors are nominated by MTI staff and selected based on their ability to get along with others, their willingness to participate, and their outgoing personality. Nominations for this group are ongoing.
