The Bader International Study Centre (BISC) Ambassadors are a select group of student leaders who attended the BISC in their first year of undergraduate studies or for a semester as an upper year undergraduate student. Working closely with the BISC Admissions Office they represent and promote the BISC to current and prospective students, guests, and alumni.
