About the Intern Program

Women's Center interns are an integral part of the Women's Center staff and play a critical role in outreach efforts to the greater campus, as well as community building within the Center. Interns also provide education, information, and resources to other UCSD students. Internships are a great way to impact your campus community, earn money to help pay for living expenses, and gain transferable skills that will aid you in your career.
