Habitat for Humanity Humanities in Action Internship Opportunity

The Humanities in Action internship is available to all UMW students majoring in the humanities but with special preference for those majoring in Classics, Philosophy, and Religious Studies. Cassie Kimberlin, the executive director of the Greater Fredericksburg affiliate of Habitat for Humanity, and CPR chair Joe Romero have established this internship to give students with commitments to equity and social justice to test their specialized training in managing the life’s big questions—questions of fairness, equity, human rights—by helping a major non-profit address the issue of affordable housing in the Fredericksburg region. To learn more, contact Joe Romero (jromero [at] umw.edu) to attend one of our Information sessions from 4-5 pm on both Wednesday, October 14 and Wednesday, October 21 on Zoom. To apply now, go to Handshake and search for “Humanities in Action Internship: Greater Fredericksburg Habitat for Humanity and University of Mary Washington.” The deadline for applications is soon: Tuesday, October 27. A small group of applicants will be asked to interview the week of November 2; the final selection will be announced Tuesday, November 10.
