Diplomats are responsible and professional individuals who enjoy meeting and working with their peers and community, and have great communications skills and a strong sense of commitment to the University of Florida and the Warrington College of Business Administration. To ensure the quality of the Warrington Diplomats, each member must be an upper-division student (Junior or Senior) and must maintain a minimum 3.3 GPA. In addition to the necessary qualities and responsibilities listed on the previous page, each Diplomat will be required to attend 1.5-hour bi-weekly meetings covering topics including training, scheduling, and necessary updates from the organization. He/she will serve on a committee that meets during the last half-hour of each meeting. These committees are responsible for the general promotion of the Warrington Diplomats, member morale within the organization, and planning and coordinating our events, to name a few. The Diplomats are expected to commit a significant amount of time to the organization. Although it varies throughout the year, members of the Diplomats should be prepared to devote 2-4 hours per week to training, meetings, tours, and other duties.
Warrington Diplomats will be responsible for the following:
Drop/Add & Advance Registration Tabling
Warrington Diplomats help the School of Business during its busiest times of the year: Drop/Add and Advance Registration. The Diplomats answer basic advising questions and give advice to students to help decrease the wait time to speak with a business advisor.
Ace the Showcase
This event is held each semester to prepare students for Career Showcase by helping students with their résumés, interviewing skills, 60-second commercials, and by providing them with the opportunity to simulate Career Showcase.
Service as a Resource Person
Diplomats are an important part of the School of Business outreach to prospective, new, and current students. As such, Diplomats receive training in WCBA policies, procedures, and programs. Diplomats will be available for other duties as assigned by the advisor.
