Associate Director for Internships and Experiential Learning

SLU currently offers two unique semester-long experiential learning programs that combine rigorous academic study with hands-on experience and opportunities to gain the academic and practical skills to effect change. Students in both programs intern under the supervision of a mentor, receive a stipend, enroll in four courses at either the undergraduate or graduate level, and earn a certificate either in Labor Studies or Community Leadership. The Union Semester program pairs students from across the country and around the world with labor unions and worker-rights organizations to learn firsthand the strategies these organizations use to fight for worker rights. The Community Semester program provides local students with an opportunity to learn how community-based organizations fight for social and economic justice, housing rights, immigrant rights, tenants’ rights, and community empowerment. Additional internships are being developed with city and state legislative bodies and agencies.
