Faculty-led community-engaged research internship

In summer 2022, ProCES will support enrolled undergraduate students hired by faculty members on a community-engaged research-based internship. 

Internship work will be of an academic nature and provide benefit to faculty and community partner initiatives.  Interns may have the opportunity to refine a research question for a community-engaged project, conduct a literature review on a question of interest, collect or analyze new data, and/or practice research strategies relevant to future or current research. Potential projects may include the following activities: engaging in archival research, creating best practices reviews, designing assessments, developing curricula, generating research-based text and content for websites or grants, and/or interviewing or surveying clients.  

The Derian Student Internship fund is named in honor of Patricia "Patt" Derian, a human rights activist and a U.S. State Department official in President Carter's administration.

My internship...helped me prepare for my thesis [and] it also taught me the lasting impact research can have on communities…I realized community-based research was a great way to step out of the classroom and make creative solutions for real-life issues. With the mentors and resources of [ProCES] as well as the welcoming atmosphere of my internship site, I gained a variety of skills that proved useful to my college studies and beyond. ~Amani Rush, class of 2016
