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. Before you submit the request form, please review the University of Tampa Spartan Shield Health and Safety plan. The Diplomats will follow these parameters, including wearing a face mask when appropriate, to ensure they are able to assist you with your University function while keeping our members safe.
