ABOUT INVOLVEMENT AMBASSADORS
The Involvement Ambassadors are a group of experienced student leaders who are responsible for promoting campus involvement. They facilitate one-on-one consultations and group presentations that help connect fellow students to the incredible opportunities to get involved at the U. It is their job to help students find their “home” and develop a deep connection with the U. The Involvement Ambassadors offer two primary services to the U of U community—consultations and presentations.
MEET THE TEAM
Our Involvement Ambassador Team is currently made up of one amazing student leader, Sarah Kingsley!
A message from Sarah:
Howdy! My name is Sarah Kingsley and I am an undergraduate studying Biomedical Engineering. I work on campus as an Involvement Ambassador connecting students with extracurricular and community resources to help them succeed. My free time is spent hiking, playing the guitar, reading romance novels, and traveling. Visiting hot springs is also a passion of mine, so I can often be found traveling across the state to explore a new spring.
Consultations are the best way to figure out how to get involved. During the consultation, an ambassador will sit one-on-one with you to learn about your major, hobbies, interests, potential skill development, and goals for your time at the U. Together you'll explore Campus Connect and a variety of other involvement resources to craft your personalized involvement plan. Involvement consultations are available in-person and virtually for Spring 2022.

FOR CAMPUS PARTNERS
For faculty, staff, and student advisors, scheduling an involvement presentation will help students identify the benefits of on-campus involvement, resources for getting involved, and steps to start their involvement journey. We are happy to come to your class, your department team meeting, a recruitment event, or other outreach event. These presentations may take around thirty minutes or so and can tailored to your students' needs. These presentations may take place in-person or virtually.

- Unsettling Settler Words, Images, and Ideas: Settler Murals and Settler Archives
Unsettling Settler Words, Images, and Ideas: Settler Murals and Settler Archives *HYBRID EVENT* In this session, we will explore how settlers utilize the political economies of literacies, semiotics, and rhetorics to produce an excessive image of themselves as a savior of the world destined to bring about the world's salvation, progress, and development, manufacture images of empty landscapes from which inhabiting bodies vanish and/or disappear, and codify a modern/colonial system of ideas, images, and ends. We will reflect on how the idea of race and a logic of domination, management, and control, undergirding this epistemological project and system, have been sold and imported, purchased and shared-in, and expanded and/or disputed in the rhetorical market of cultural texts across three tempo-localities: Texas, Utah, and Washington. And we will contend with the consequences: the colonization of land, "resources," people, and knowledge, understanding, and being. We will then consider the utility of a rhetorical, ecological, and decolonial perspective and lens and the analytic task of unsettling the settled ideas land was either waiting to be discovered or up for grabs to be owned, that "resources" by divine and/or natural right were awaiting extraction and exploitation, and that certain people are dispensable by divine and/or natural designs. This event is part of the Undergraduate Research Education Series, which offers educational events on topics of interest to undergraduate student researchers and their faculty mentors. These events are open to all and are designed specifically with undergraduate students in mind.
