Distribute educational materials helpful to off-campus living, including: issues of health and safety, rights and responsibilities, and ways to navigate through landlord, neighbor or roommate situations. Contribute to monthly newsletters by writing half-page articles and proving helpful information for students living off-campus. Programming: Work with other Neighborhood Ambassadors to plan and coordinate community events for residents in your neighborhood. For more information, consult offcampus.umich.edu
