I have been a U.Va. alumna for all of three months now, and to say that I miss the University and everyone I met there is a gigantic understatement. However, life must go on, and I am excited to say that I am about to start a journey that would have never been possible without U.Va. and without the Women’s Center.

Interning at the U.Va. Women’s Center gives students hands-on experience developing skills that will be useful to them in the wide variety of fields they pursue after graduation. Applicants commit to a year-long internship that includes a three-credit fall semester course entitled “Women, Peace and Justice” (WGS), taught by Women’s Center faculty members. In the spring, students have the option of taking a second semester course through EDLF that is team-taught by the Women's Center faculty, or volunteering their time to fulfill their commitment to their internship.
