Student Ambassadors

Science and Business Ambassador Team.

The Science and Business Ambassadors (SBAT) is a student-run organization that is dedicated to supporting Science and Business students through the provision of information, resources, and mentorship. Working in association with the Science and Business Resource Centre, SBAT volunteers hail from all three Science and Business programs (Science & Business, Biotechnology/Chartered Accountancy, and Biotech/Economics) and are composed of students from various years of undergraduate study.

It is our goal to become the first point-of-contact for all Science and Business students and act as a student resource for academics, co-op, network building, and campus life. Since our foundation in September 2005, we have worked to build strong connections among all Science and Business students, regardless of program specialization or year of study. Furthermore, we are committed to creating networking opportunities and strengthening relationships between prospective students, current students, and Science and Business student alumni.

You can also follow us on Twitter with the handle @uwSBAT, and be sure to check out our Snapchat feed: uwsbat. We look forward to hearing from you!
