The CNLM Ambassador Program aims to advance public understanding of brain science through outreach and educational activities. The engine of the program is a group of more than 50 UCI undergraduate students, graduate students and postdoctoral fellows who design, execute and evaluate meaningful activities on campus and in the community throughout the year. The program provides leadership opportunities for UCI brain scientists as well as professional development training in scientific communication, educational program outcome design and evaluation.
