Women's Center interns are an integral part of the Women's Center staff, contributing to the Women's Center mission, developing as student leaders, and providing services and programs around gender and social justice issues. Interning at the Center provides students with hands-on experience developing skills that will be useful to them in the wide variety of fields that they pursue after graduation.
Interns work closely with the professional staff, volunteers and the community, are responsible for coordinating events, educating the campus about gender and social justice issues, creating the quarterly newsletter, and managing the facility. The internship program is one of the most vital aspects of the Center's programs and resources.
Interns play a critical role in Women's Center programming and participate in a variety of programs and outreach events across campus and in the community. The majority of these events provide education, information, and resources to UCSD students.
As the Women's Center has continued to grow, interns have been central to this effort and to the mission and vision of the Center. A primary goal of the internship program is to enhance and support students' academic experience at UCSD. Women's Center interns are able to explore new ways of engaging with their communities in an effort to advance the goal of achieving a more just and equitable society. The learning outcomes that guide the internship program are outlined below.
