National internships are coordinated through our participation in the Shepherd Higher Education Consortium on Poverty summer internship program, and are located in urban and rural settings throughout the United States with agencies that serve in educational, healthcare, immigration, legal, housing, social and economic capacities for the needs of individuals and their communities. Students who are selected for this internship program will become a part of a Privilege & Poverty cohort that will prepare together during spring semester workshops, participate in the summer internship, regroup for reflection upon return to campus, and bring the knowledge and understanding gained from these experiences to the college community throughout the academic year.
