Ginsberg Center: Student Advisory Board

Overview

Group of Advisory Board Members
Advisory Board Members

The Ginsberg Center seeks passionate, engaged students to serve on its Student Advisory Board. The Student Advisory Board consists of 10-20 student leaders who provide input to Ginsberg Center staff regarding the programs, initiatives, and direction of the Center, and voice the needs and concerns of students as they relate to the work of the Center. Student Advisory Board members represent Ginsberg Center programs and initiatives, student organizations (particularly those who focus on service, social justice, advocacy, and/or activism), and the campus at large. Members remain active on campus, promote the ideals of the Ginsberg Center, and represent the Center at the University and beyond.

Members are expected to make a minimum one academic year commitment and attend Student Advisory Board meetings four times per semester. Minimal work is required outside of meetings. Past Student Advisory Boards have initiated such projects as the Graduation Social Responsibility Pledge, informed the Center’s marketing and social media strategies, served on various Ginsberg Center committees, such as grant selection and hiring committees, and helped provide key feedback in our strategic planning process.

This program is open to U-M Ann Arbor students in any major with a passion for community engagement, social change, and service learning.
