About Us

As an academic hub for all disciplines, the U-M Library is committed to actively engaging with the campus community to extend learning beyond the classroom. The Student Engagement Program provides and supports transformative student experiences, enabling practical opportunities for students to explore, experiment, create, lead, and reflect — capacities and skills that are critical to addressing 21st century problems in any field.

Student Ambassadors partnered with the University Career Center to offer students free professional head shots that could be used for networking and job searching sites like LinkedIn.

For more examples of the work happening in the Student Engagement Program, watch our video from the 2017 symposium.
