Student Involvement

The Office of Academic Support (OAS) offers UF students a variety of free resources and programs, but we also offer students volunteer opportunities.  These positions allow students to increase their level of involvement with OAS, but also to develop professionalism and gain experience in various skills.

Ambassadors

OAS Ambassadors is a student organization created to develop student’s leadership capabilities and understanding the benefits of maintaining a healthy balance between social and academics at the University of Florida. OAS Ambassadors are responsible for amplifying the message and goals of the OAS Office across the UF campus and serve as liaisons between OAS staff and UF students.
