Rod Library is beginning a pilot program with five UNI students in the 2017 fall semester. The objective of the Library Ambassadors is to share the library's experience with current and prospective students, their families, and the UNI community. These volunteers will advocate for the perspectives of students through conversation and example. The program promotes an integration of the library into the campus community and serves as a team-building experience for students.
My part as a leader for the program is to create working projects and incorporate the Library Ambassadors with campus groups to build foundations and establish networking skills. By establishing partnerships throughout the community will serve as a team-building experience for everyone. The program is supported by the Library Ambassadors Work Group which consist of faculty and staff from Rod Library.
