The University of Tampa Diplomats
have altruistically served the University campus and local community since 1983. The Diplomats are synonymous with service. Their prestigious reputation, upheld by the dynamic members, is recognized campus wide. The members of the organization are leaders who serve as ambassadors to the University and encompass the ability to serve, lead, motivate, empower and educate their peers. Diplomat membership consists of some of the University’s top leaders. The members are selected based on their ability to work with others, leadership and charisma.
Diplomats facilitate Minaret Society dinners, Business Symposiums, Family Weekend and Commencement events for the campus every academic year. They also organize and train the Fall Orientation Team Leaders to be a part of the first year experience for the new incoming students. These are only a few of the organization’s contributions to the campus community.
The Diplomats were established to proudly serve the campus community. We would like to extend an invitation to you to make use of our volunteerism in events you organize for the campus or the greater Tampa Bay community. To request the Diplomats, please complete a Diplomat Request Form
