Student Ambassadors

Our Library Engagement Ambassadors are dynamic undergraduate student leaders who actively promote library resources and services to the campus community. Students work collaboratively as a team to drive projects and develop creative communications strategies. The students work to:

  • Promote library services and resources to students through targeted social media campaigns and digital exhibits
  • Publicize and host library events that foster engagement, diversity and inclusion
  • Suggest ways to improve student experience by participating in meetings and focus  groups with library staff
  • Represent U-M Library at campus fairs and events

MEET THE AMBASSADORS

Savina Sahgal

I am from a suburb of Chicago, and I love spending time with my family and friends, travelling, and trying new restaurants in Ann Arbor. On campus I am also a part of the Bioethics Society, the HOPE Ambassadors program, and Pi Beta Phi.  I’m very excited to work with the University of Michigan Library System!

I’m a senior from Beverly Hills, Michigan and I’m currently studying Movement Science with a minor in Spanish. I love hanging out with my friends, painting, doing yoga, and going on walks (even during Michigan Winters). On campus I’m a member of Pi Beta Phi sorority and am very excited to be returning as a Student Engagement Ambassador at the library!

I am currently a freshmen in LSA’s Residential College program from Grosse Pointe, Michigan. I am studying Spanish and Film, Television and Media.

I’m excited to work this year with the library system, Go Blue!

I’m also (just recently) part of the UM Education Theater Company, and I love all things theater and literature. I’m really excited to join you all to be a part of the University of Michigan Library System, and I’m sure it’ll be a great experience!
