Interested in learning more about the internal and external workings of SWC? Looking to gain better event planning skills and a chance to improve student wellness? Apply to be a SWC intern!

The SWC fellowship program is designed to provide interns with a more holistic and comprehensive understanding of the Student Wellness Commission and to prepare them for future leadership positions within SWC. The SWC interns will work closely with SWC's Executive Board members to learn about the internal structure of SWC and SWC as a whole. Their primary role will be to help committees with event preparation and to assist with various internal and external tasks. The interns will play an integral part of the planning and preparation of any commission wide-events including Bruin Health Week in the Spring quarter. Interns will also work one-on-one with different executive-board members if they wish to do so (i.e Marketing, Finance, Logistics).
