The Edward Ginsberg Center for Community Service and Learning
Graduate Academic Liaison
Allison is a PhD candidate in sociocultural anthropology studying the impacts of climate change on high altitude communities in Peru. She is originally from coastal Maine and loves spending time outdoors-- hiking, swimming, and kayaking when she can get the chance. Allison is passionate about environmental and sustainability issues, and interested in storytelling and ethnography as methods for community engagement and social change. As a Ginsberg Center Graduate Academic Liaison, she hopes to learn more about academic-community partnerships in Ann Arbor and looks forward to helping facilitate empowering relationships between students, faculty, and community members. As a Liaison, Allison facilitates workshops for students, contributes to workshop curriculum, and support our Faculty Advisory Board and Faculty Affiliates.
