Ginsberg Graduate Consultant Program
The Ginsberg Center for Community Service and Learning offers a year-long paid opportunity for University of Michigan graduate students called the Graduate Consultant Program (formerly, Graduate Academic Liaisons). Open to PhD students across disciplines, Ginsberg's Graduate Consultant Program trains you for one of three roles: Engaged Learning Consultants, Community Partnership Consultants, and Public Health Community Liaison. MPH students may apply to the Public Health Community Liaison track.
All Graduate Consultants help broaden the Ginsberg Center’s capacity to support our academic partners (faculty, staff, and GSIs) and our community partners. In return, they are part of a community of practice centered around equitable community engagement. Graduate Consultants learn and apply best practices, cultivate their leadership skills, form relationships with other students, academic, and community partners, and contribute to the Center's mission to support equitable campus-community partnerships in service to the public good.
