Policy Internship

Policy Internship

In collaboration with the Women’s and Gender Studies Program, the Women’s Center offers a policy internship program for undergraduate students interested in learning about the ways in which policies impact gender equity in the higher education setting.

Over the course of the academic year, students gain foundational knowledge of gender equity-related issues in higher education, explore policy development in the university context, connect with experts across campus, and aspire to make meaningful contributions to UD policies which have the capacity to promote gender equity on campus.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Gain a greater understanding of gender equity issues within higher education (and other employment sectors)
  2. Develop understanding of how policies are developed within a university environment
  3. Understand best practices related to benchmarking research
  4. Create guidance documents to assist policy makers with applying a gender lens in the development of policies
  5. Make meaning of your experience through participation in experiential learning lab and written articulation of work experience on resume.

Eligible students will earn academic credit through the Women’s and Gender Studies Program (max 3 credit hours per semester).
