Undergraduate Internship

The University Counseling Center invites University of Utah undergraduate students to consider a paid undergraduate internship with our Mindfulness Center, also known as the Change Coalition. Interns will get training in and practice providing mindfulness interventions, such as facilitating mindfulness meditations and skill building workshops, and outreach presentations focused on building a fiercely compassionate, socially just, and deeply resilient campus community. We provide interns with a weekly credit bearing course (tuition not included) on peer mentoring practices and social justice issues as well as weekly group supervision.

Selected interns will:

  • Commit 19 hours per week for the 2019-2020 academic year
  • Receive financial and academic credit compensation
  • Develop and facilitate programming that builds more just, resilient, and compassionate campuses by combining student wisdom and psychological research
  • Conduct mindfulness-oriented outreach presentations across campus
  • Facilitate workshops through the Mindfulness Center
