The UFMC interns play a critical role in developing and maintaining our programs and services. Interns learn job-related skills and the importance of working in a team environment.

Although interns are hired with a specific job function, much of the work they do expands beyond the job description. Interns are expected to collaborate and assist with other projects when needed. Interns receive role specific training, as well as training focusing on identity and leadership development.


Intern Learning Outcomes:

  • Demonstrate an understanding of one's own identity, culture, and heritage and seek to learn more about others.
  • Identify biases and prejudices that impact our community.
  • Identify characteristics of leadership and define their own leadership philosophy and style.
  • Explore and engage in inquiry into the problems, challenges, and possibilities in a multicultural society including systems that maintain power and privilege.
  • Apply the skills developed and realize the opportunities to serve organizations within their community.
