The Edward Ginsberg Center for Community Service and Learning
Student Engagement Coordinator
As the Student Engagement Coordinator, Alison builds relationships with students and student organizations who work with community partners to meet community-identified needs. She supports students in meeting their goals for social action by providing advising services, facilitating trainings, and managing the Alternative Breaks Grant. She also serves as the Michigan Active Citizens - Alternative Spring Break (MAC-ASB) advisor and works with the MAC-ASB team as they create and facilitate alternative breaks focused on community engagement and social change.
Alison began her current role as of August 2019, but she has been connected to Ginsberg for years. She completed her undergraduate degree at U-M and received support from the Ginsberg Center during her time with the student organization WeRead. Since then, Alison has been living and working in Arizona, leading international youth programs and completing her Master's degree in International Education Management. She was drawn to this position at Ginsberg because she is eager to support students in their journeys to become active citizens and to help them deepen their understanding of social justice.
In her free time, Alison loves to read, rock climb, and plan allergen-friendly meals for her friends. She can usually be spotted adoring any and all dog friends nearby and exploring everything the Ann Arbor and Washtenaw County communities have to offer.
