APPLICATION DUE DATE: FEBRUARY 1st at 11:59PM.
- Network and Build a Community: PISC is one of the youngest Student Commissions in the ASUW. PISC is a great place to network as we hear about jobs, internships, scholarships, and leadership programs all the time through our academic and professional connections! As an intern you will get to meet and build relationships throughout the ASUW and the Pacific Islander community at the UW and the greater Seattle area. - Broaden your skill set: Improve upon skills that you may carry with you into your professional careers. Not many people can say that they have programmed large events, worked on grant proposals, taught or lectured on Pacific Islander culture, or say that they coordinated student retreats on campus. This internship involves advocating for Pacific Islander students on UW's campus. Through this we hope that you will both find your community and build upon your leadership skills. We intend on giving you and experience that will both be educational and beneficial to your personal growth. - Celebrate Pacific Islander Culture: One of the best parts about PISC is that we oversee several diverse student organizations. Even with a small list of organizations, our constituents are teeming with diversity. Whether you’re interested in learning how to cook traditional Micronesian dishes with MIC, learning about Polynesian kava ceremonies with PSA, about Hawaiian legends with Hui, how to dance traditional Filipino dances with the FASA learning how to or even just meeting awesome people to help you advance your education in PIPE, you are bound to not only explore your own Oceanic culture, but also experience other cultures. -------RESPONSIBILITIES-------
