Internship Title: Advancing Antiracism and Inclusion - Faculty Grant Program
Department: Division of the Academic Senate
Mentor Names: Fatima Paul and Naoko Kada
Working closely with the Academic Senate Office staff, the student will assist with the administration of the grants, using standard office software including Excel, and strong interpersonal skills, both orally and in writing. The student will be tasked with drafting the grant application form, and with publicizing the grant opportunity to UC Merced faculty. The student will support the grantees with the final reporting of the grant projects by creating a standard template for reporting, and facilitate the presentation of the final reports, hopefully at an in-person event in Spring 2022. The student will have multiple opportunities to interact with faculty committed to advancing antiracism and inclusion at UC Merced, and a chance to gain or improve their skills in communication, project management, event planning, and publication.
