- EDI Intern
Office of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion
The purpose of the Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Office shall be to increase the knowledge, appreciation, and presence of diversity on campus. The Office shall work to provide support for historically underrepresented groups on campus. The Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Office is dedicated to helping create a constant medium for discussion on issues pertaining to diversity awareness through forums, diversity trainings, films, speakers, and periodic surveys of campus climate, and by any other appropriate events or programs. The Office shall work to ensure that support for the services and programs of resource centers such as the Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Resource Center (LGBTRC), the Cross Cultural Center, The Women’s Center, Student Promoted Access Center for Education and Service (SPACES), the International Center, the Office of Academic Support and Instructional Services (OASIS) is advocated for through the Associated Students. The Office shall support student-initiated outreach and retention of students from historically underrepresented backgrounds at UCSD. The Office shall maintain good working relations with the directors of the above-mentioned centers.
This position is ideal for students with little to no experience in Associated Students. The larger purpose for an Office of EDI Intern is to not only induct students into AS and expose them to student leadership, but to also provide students passionate about social justice a platform to exercise their activism. Other than providing support for projects and goals that the Office of EDI or Women's Commision will endeavor in, Interns should also remain vocal and active members during discussions and meetings.
