Leadership Development

Check out the leadership opportunities at Marshall College.

Student Affairs Dean's Internship

The Student Affairs Dean’s Intern program develops equity-oriented leaders who collaborate to foster community at Marshall College through a diverse array of programs and events. Students in this program have the unique opportunity to build their program-planning and event-planning skills, provide administrative support to the Office of the Dean of Student Affairs, and grow together as a cohort of student leaders making positive change at Marshall College and beyond.

The growth and learning students can expect in this year-long program is not accidental; it is planned and encouraged! Students will be able to articulate an understanding of Scholar & Citizen, and what it means for them as a student; develop, plan, implement, and evaluate programs/events/projects with minimal supervision; collaborate effectively and respectfully with other team members and campus partners and work effectively and respectfully as a team; and produce programs/events/activities that articulate and advance the College’s values of equity and diversity. Additionally, students will be able to work alongside professional staff of the College to advance the mission of the College.

Applications are available in Spring Quarter, and acceptance into the program is determined prior to Summer. The program runs year long, beginning in Fall Quarter and concluding in Spring Quarter. A mixture of volunteer and paid positions (Lead Dean’s Intern and Graphic Designer) are available.

Advisor: Colin Lewis,

Welcome Week Summer Interns

Summer interns have the unique opportunity to partner with the Marshall College Orientation program to put on the social and community-building aspects of Orientation, called Welcome Week. Summer interns are charged with assisting in developing programming and events that help welcome our new and continuing students to UC San Diego and Marshall College. Students selected as Summer interns will have the opportunity to plan this long-standing Marshall College tradition over the Summer, as well as assist in overseeing the events and programs themselves during Orientation. Appointments can expect to conclude once the academic year begins.
