The way I see a Fedora Campus Ambassador's role ...

... they represent Fedora _inside_ of other campus groups -- IEEE,
SIGs, LUGs, etc.

... they coordinate with _other_ Fedorans (Ambassadors, other
contributors) to be part of existing events.

... they present Fedora at existing events.

... they start new events in coordination with other FLOSS groups and
Fedora contributors in the area.

In this way, they do not replace existing Fedora or FLOSS efforts.
Instead, Campus Ambbassadors add to those efforts.

Hmm, yeah, I know what you mean. In fact, it's the same role as Ambassadors are supposed to play, but, hmm, right, there might be no Ambassadors at campus while there're some Ambassadors even in the same city. I'd describe the role of Campus Ambassadors as "activization of academic community" ;)
