ABOUT

From 2015-2018, the Blum Ambassadors Council (BAC) functioned as a student association of the Blum Center, attracting the brightest student leaders passionate about poverty action. Throughout the school year, the Ambassadors networked with visiting scholars, volunteered with campus and community organizations, and hosted events to raise a greater campus awareness of poverty in its many forms. For more information about the functions of the student council, view or download the BAC Constitution.

The BAC is currently on hiatus. If you are interested in spearheading the chapter, contact blumcenter@uci.edu
