EMILY AMBROSE, ASSISTANT DIRECTOR
Emily Ambrose is thrilled to be joining the GLBTQQA Staff as its first Assistant Director. Although not new to CSU or to the office, Emily is excited for the new directions and challenges to come.
She graduated from CSU in 2010 with a Master’s in Student Affairs in Higher Education, after traveling as a Leadership Consultant for her international sorority. Emily graduated with her Bachelor’s in Communication and a certificate in LGBT Studies from CU-Boulder.
Most recently, she worked in the office of Student Leadership, Involvement & Community Engagement with leadership initiatives and still teaches in the President’s Leadership Program. And yet, these experiences only partially represent her.
Emily enjoys dancing, traveling, guiding in the Grand Canyon, binge watching Netflix with her roommate, and visiting family with her partner. She loves all the students and staff she has come to know and will meet in her new position!
