Local Internships


In this, most popular option, the students identify and negotiate their own internship placement with a nearby not-for-profit or government agency.

Internships close to campus include working with human rights-related organizations on the UConn campus, such as the Women’s Center, the Rainbow Center, and the African American Cultural Center. Beyond Storrs, students complete their internships with a number of organizations across the state, including the No Freeze Hospitality Center in Willimantic, Integrated Refugee & Immigrant Services (IRIS) in New Haven, and ACLU-Connecticut in Hartford. While most students intern with non-governmental organizations, some worked directly with state agencies: the Department of Children and Family Service and the Connecticut Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities.
