Course Description: The Introductory Student Leadership Intern Program was created in order to promote early involvement and increased understanding of social justice, citizenship, participatory democracy, and student advocacy. The program is intended to meet the needs of student interns by facilitating a direct action organizing experience in campus student government, cultural unions, and other extracurricular programs that provide for the social, cultural, educational and physical development of their members, and for the advancement of students’ individual and collective interests both within and outside of the campus.

Since OSA is going into their issue choosing process, interns will be writing up issue briefs which may be turned into legislative concepts and become state law and direct OSA legislative priorities for the next biennium. This is an excellent chance for students to become part of something which influences the course of State Life for years to come.

If students are interested they need to email Devon Backstrom at by 4/14/2017 with their name and phone number. Additionally, if they want to take it as credit they need to decide if they want EC409 practicum credit, or if they want to get departmental approval for a different sort of credit (stuff like Poli Sci, or Social Sciences etc) they need to obtain departmental approval by this time. If they want to take it for EC409 credit Bret Anderson should be emailed at by Thursday 4/13/2017. Syllabi are available in the ASSOU Office in SU308.
