Division of Diversity, Equity, and Educational Achievement Internship Program
DDEEA Internship
Program
The Division of Diversity, Equity, and Educational Achievement Internship Program gives students the opportunity to take part in diversity-related work on an administrative level, at a public institution for higher education. The DDEEA Internship Program also creates experiences for students that allow them to grow personally and professionally. Interns develop a focused, creative, fast-paced, organized work ethic, build professional connections across campus, and gain knowledge on the intricate organizational structure of UW-Madison administration. DDEEA interns work in a wide variety of capacities. Each of the 4 Pathways to Educational Achievement coordinators, who specialize in African-American, Latinx, American Indian, and SE Asian American student services, have 1-2 interns. Additionally, individual interns work directly with DDEEA staff who specialize in events, STEM initiatives, business services, and Information Technology. Other interns work more generally in DDEEA offices in Bascom Hall or in the Red Gym and work on individual and group projects, both assigned and self-created. The internship program at OVPCDO gives interns the opportunity to participate in work that makes campus a more inclusive space for their peers & future students of all identity groups. The OVPCDO internship program will give students the tools that they need to become confident, marketable leaders as they enter the professional world upon leaving UW-Madison. Specifically, the program focuses on developing: • Inter-personal communication • Professional etiquette • Project planning & follow through • Organization The last portion of this handbook outlines that specific ways that we will move towards these development goals throughout the year. Some of the most important resources to interns throughout the year will be their mentors, the lead, the programming coordinator & the development coordinator.
Initiative is not on behalf of a RSO.
