Internships/Service Learning

 

We offer both internships and service learning for undergraduate and graduate students seeking to gain on-site experience with programs and events aimed at promoting acceptance, diversity, and leadership on campus. Internships may be completed for academic credit based on the criteria within your major.

There are two types of internship positions: Communications and Marketing interns and Diversity and Advocacy Program Events interns. The Communications and Marketing Intern will assist with promotional materials, website management, social media, and communications and marketing for events and programs. He or she may also be involved with event planning and coordination and have the opportunity to focus on issues of interest or complete an internship project. The Diversity and Advocacy Intern will assist with event planning and operations, develop content for the website.

Hannah Bjork

I’m a sophomore from Massachusetts, and I am majoring in Social Work.  My hopes while working with the Woman’s Resource Center is to get a better understanding for the needs of women.  And I hope I will be able to reach out to the women on Auburn University’s campus and let them know we are here for them.  I am involved in Best Buddies which allows me to work with people in the Auburn community, and now working at the WRC I will be able to directly work with the Auburn University community and I am really excited!

What students are saying about internships and service learning at the Women's Resource Center:

"Interning at the Women’s Resource Center has only broadened my intellectual horizons and given me amazing opportunities I didn’t think possible. I currently focus on writing pieces for different campus publications in which I highlight issues facing women—specifically Auburn University’s women. The positive, encouraging, and inspiring atmosphere the WRC embodies is one I am lucky to be a part of, and one I recommend to any ambitious student."

 -EJ Johnston, Fall 2012 Intern

"I’m currently a WRC intern, on the publicity committee for the Chocolate Festival, an ambassador for the WRC, and am also on a committee for the Women’s Leadership Conference this year. The WRC has been a great influence on helping me acquire powerful skills that I will need for my future. I am currently gaining great marketable skills by writing for the Plainswoman, planning events around campus, and developing public speaking skills through presentations."

 -Korica Simon, Fall 2012 Intern
