Forte Fellow Ambassadors

Notre Dame's Forte Fellow Ambassadors serve as campus champions of the Forté Foundation. They assist the campus program administration in communicating important information about Forté, in addition to encouraging networking among Forté Fellows on campus and locally. Ambassadors also serve as a liaison between Forté and the campus graduate women in business organization. Forte Fellow Ambassadors are selected in early spring and serve from mid-February of their first-year through graduation. This will allow for transitioning to the new ambassadors during the spring semester.
