The Institute for the Humanities is pleased to announce three graduate student internships in public programming. Interns will work collaboratively with each other and with the institute’s director to plan and implement programs focusing on inclusion and social justice at a range of scales using varied modes of engagement.

Interns will gain experience researching, conceptualizing, and implementing programs that engage campus audiences, especially undergraduate students, and publics beyond the university. Interns will research topics and consult broadly on initiatives; they will collaboratively design and assess programs; they will investigate and implement partnerships with humanities and arts units across campus and, if relevant, in the broader community.
