OC3 Student Internship
At the Otter Cross Cultural Center, we place a high value on developing students' cultural awareness, understanding of social justice, and growth during their time at CSUMB. Join us by becoming an OC3 Student Intern! This is a great way for you to not only be involved on campus, but also within your own personal communities. Not only will you learn on how to advocate for yourself and your communities, but you will also get an opportunity to create your own event on campus to create that social change! Expand your knowledge on identities, intersectionality, cross-culturalism, leadership, professionalism, and more!
This is an academic year-long commitment and will require you to dedicate about 4-5 hours a week. Don't miss out on this opportunity!

What will I get out of this internship?
That amount of commitment that interns decide to put in their internship experience will reflect the outcome of their experience. Come with an open mind because others will too!
What is a Student Coordinator?

What do I do during my office hours?
Office hours consist of anything OC3-related.
Do I have to go to every weekly meeting?
Yes. Meetings are mandatory, unless told otherwise. However, if an intern must miss a meeting for an extenuating circumstance (i.e. getting sick) they can talk to the Internship Student Coordinator.
What happens during the intern meeting?
Meetings are times when interns get together in community to learn about a topic around diversity/social justice. These meetings are meant to be developmental and focused on interns' growth!
