Summer​ 2021

Hyphen the World Virtual Internships in India (Summer A Term or Summer Quarter)

Following a successful pilot last summer, in which 6 UW students completed 4- to 8-week projects on topics such as reproductive health, transgender rights, and youth leadership, we plan on offering the opportunity to UW students again in 2021. The commitment is part-time, about 10 hours per week dedicated to the project and 2-3 hours per week of mentorship/ reflection activities for processing and deepening learning. Students will have the option to complete the internships for credit or not. 

Early Fall 2021

This interdisciplinary program offers the opportunity for a fully integrated experiential learning in natural history, ecology, conservation and cultural and creative explorations in one of the most fascinating regions in North America: The Pacific Northwest (PNW). We will set up camps in Friday Harbor and the Olympic Peninsula, which are home to important species and ecosystems. While camping in these areas, students will also learn first-hand about the use of resources in local communities, and the current conservation and economical challenges the local communities face in this unprecedented time of ecosystem degradation. Students will also discuss parallel stories between the PNW and mountain, coastal and rainforest ecosystems in Peru and other countries.
