4W Summer Internships Show Global Impact

By Bailey Schult

2018 Summer 4W Internships Expand Globally

This summer, the 4W Nepal internship program from 2017 with Professor Jennifer Angus was expanded to include seven students and IIP Advisor and Program Coordinator Carly Stingl organized two additional internship locations; Associate Professor Carolyn Kallenborn brought two interns to Mexico and with Dr. Mary Crave traveled with another pair of students to Ghana. While most of these interns come from SoHE, students from all schools are encouraged to participate, with a topic of interest related to gender and well-being as the sole requirement. Intern participation more than tripled from the previous year.
