The UCR Summer Internship for Housing and LGBT Concerns
Each summer, since 2004, we select up to two graduate students for our internship program. The position is a joint appointment with UCR Housing Services and the LGBT Resource Center.
Interns learn about aspects of directing an LGBT resource center, including programming, training, advocacy, budgeting and more. They also gain valuable experience working with a large-scale university housing program.
This is a 6-week, full-time posiiton beginning in mid-June.
UCR enrolls more than 18,000 undergraduate students. Approximately 25 percent of students live in student housing, including 75 percent of the freshman class.
The student population is culturally diverse, with approximately 80% of undergraduates identifying as Asian Pacific Islander, African American, Chicano/a/Latino/a or Native American.
Since 1993, the LGBT Resource Center has provided UCR with support, education and advocacy regarding sexual orientation and gender identity.
