Do More Good

Inspiring more action, because we’re more together.

That is the mission of the Ambassadors Circle, a membership collective of thinkers and doers founded by social entrepreneurs Latanya Hilton ’96, MBA ’04 and J Hilton ’96.

They try to inspire action on criminal justice reform and environmental sustainability alike. “We’re just two kids from San Jose, you know?” LT says. “Then someone opened the door for us.”

Santa Clara, J says, “taught us that we’re stronger together than apart.”

It also taught them the discipline required to be able to see goals—and get there.

“Santa Clara graduates leaders— people who are able to stand in their conviction and their compassion and make decisions for the benefit of the good of all,” LT says, “whatever industry or field.”

They brought their toddler to Grand Reunion.

They’d like him to grow up in a world that sees him and values him for who he is—with the opportunity to thrive.

To him, they’ll offer the same encouragement they’ve offered to new generations of Santa Clara grads: Invent the life you want to lead. Join them at campaign.scu.edu.
