Alumni Ambassador Program

Foster the newest generation of Doctors of Optometry.



The ICO Alumni Council established the Alumni Ambassador Program in 2013 as a way to increase outreach and engagement among alumni and build relationships with students. There are many ways for an Alumni Ambassador to get involved. They can attend ICO events, spread the word about events by posting information on social media, attend career fairs, become a shadowing site for prospective students and more.

If you are interested in joining the ICO Alumni Ambassador team, please complete the form below and we’ll go from there.

For questions, please contact ICO’s alumni office at or 312-949-7080.

Simply put, ambassadors are accessible. They use their voices to represent ICO and inspire prospective and current students. Getting involved is easy.
