THE COMMUNITY ORGANIZING STUDENT INTERN (COSI) PROGRAM

                                                                             

                               

The MICA Community Organizing Student Intern (COSI) Program offers a paid internship experience for undergraduate students for work in providing front desk coverage, customer service as well as administrative, marketing and public relations support to various staff members. Under the supervision of MICA Staff, COSI’s assist in the development of educational, programmatic and research initiatives to support the MICA’s mission and goals.

As a student in the MICA COSI Program interns are challenged to harness their “inner activist” and serve as positive change agents in the community by promoting cross-cultural understanding as a Peer Educator. This aspect of the COSI Program includes monthly workshops designed to offer strategies for sparking deeper dialogue and thought among individuals and groups. Students will learn how to help their peers investigate their own identities and lead educational, diversity-focused workshops and activities during the fall and spring semesters

The work of each COSI in the area of diversity is showcased and assessed through each intern's development and maintenance of an e-Portfolio. Through this interactive, experienced-based learning community, the hope is that students will be inspired and motivated to engage and lead others in cross-cultural and community development efforts within the context of their organizations and communities.
