The Edward Ginsberg Center for Community Service and Learning
Graduate Academic Liaison
Taru is from India and is a 2nd-year graduate student at the University of Michigan studying Urban Planning. Currently, she is involved with Inclusive Cities and Janmadhyam. Some of her favorite hobbies and activities include making films, traveling, and street-gazing. Taru is interested in participatory planning and community engagement, and feels strongly about creating inclusive and just societies. Most of her work focuses on creating socially just built fabric, improving access to infrastructure and creating channels for community-led change. As a Graduate Liaison with the Ginsberg Center, Taru facilitates workshops for students, contributes to workshop curriculum, and supports the Center's program evaluation efforts. She hopes to learn more about the various stakeholders at the University, as well as understand best ways to reach out and communicate with the larger community that interacts with us.
