The UW-Madison Libraries recently launched a program to recruit undergraduate and graduate students as library ambassadors. Those selected to participate will advocate for the perspectives of student library users and promote library resources and services to the campus community.
- Suggest ways to improve the student experience within the UW-Madison Libraries by participating in monthly meetings and focus groups
- Publicize and work at library events, such as the Helen C. House Party, the Steenbock Beach Party, and guest lectures & exhibits
- Promote library services and resources to students in residence halls, classes, and beyond
- Represent the UW-Madison Libraries at campus resource fairs, SOAR, Graduate Student Orientation, and other campus events as needed
For a full spectrum of feedback about the Libraries, organizers are especially interested in soliciting undergraduate participation. In addition to official UW-Madison Library Ambassador water bottles, hats and buttons, ambassadors stand to gain leadership skills, networking opportunities, and a chance to make a positive impact on campus.
