D&I Internship

internship logo

Across the nation, institutions of higher education are struggling to build meaningful community from an increasingly diverse student body. With programs like Unconquered Scholars, FSU is redefining what inclusion can mean on college campuses—which has led to our being named one of only 14 "Diversity Champion" universities nationally by INSIGHT Into Diversity magazine. Our approach starts with a belief that diversity is about more than a particular head count: it must reflect the quality and depth of interactions. By valuing, celebrating and leveraging the differences and similarities within our community, we create a fertile environment for problem-solving—one that is more inventive and compassionate. We’re proud that our cohesive community has become a signature of the FSU experience. But we can, and we will, do more.

This position serves as support to the EDI office by assisting in the planning, development, and delivery of diversity and inclusion projects and communication. Assists with the planning of related meetings, workshops, training, and special events; prepares and distributes meeting materials. Assists with the preparation of reports and the compilation of materials related to Diversity & Inclusion projects; attend meetings as requested; participate in assigned trainings and self-directed activities to enhance learning and further demonstrate mastery of the student’s respective field.

Kirsten Watson

Diversity and Inclusion Intern


I take an interest in diversity and inclusion work due to it setting the tone of the workplace. Social Workers are met with various problems, people, and personalities daily, and embracing all only makes them better at what they do. Diversity and inclusion setting supports employee well-being which in terms will provide good work. I want to be able to create a welcoming environment in any type of setting to continue to do the work that social workers do so individuals don't have to actively mask or downplay their differences to fit in and be successful.
