ABOUT THE INTERNSHIP
In Spring 2023, AA&PI Student Services launched an internship pilot program in partnership with the Asian American Studies department. AA&PI Student Services Internship Program offers SFSU students the opportunity to receive university credit for their community service provided on campus. Rooted in the values of Ethnic Studies, this internship is intended to help students develop their critical leadership skills in manners to advance access, relevancy, and community into our retention and outreach programming for the AA&PI community at SF State.
Overall, this internship was created to mentor students on how to navigate the field of Student Affairs to advocate and confront systemic barriers that impact Asian American and Pacific Islander students.
This internship is curated to address the 4 P’s that grounds our work towards equity and student success: Purpose, Pathways, Pipeline, and Praxis.
- Purpose: Our focus is on leadership, equity, social justice, and writing with a purpose.
- Pathways: In our spaces, we help students to think about internships, scholarships, and financial aid as they navigate the institution. As well as build authentic and meaningful relationships with their faculty members and each other.
- Pipeline: While the ultimate goal is to help students succeed to graduation, we want to make sure our students are prepared for their career goals and/or graduate school.
- Praxis: In our learning communities, we understand praxis as an ongoing, reflective approach to taking action. We encourage our students, staff, and faculty to research, respond, and reflect to address our needs collectively on campus and in our communities.
