Information on the GenEq Internship Program and volunteer opportunities may be found here.

Interns are a part of a larger collective.  We anticipate that each intern will have their own interests and strengths, and may naturally gravitate towards a particular topic area or type of work – but to work collectively, the intern must actively contribute their ideas and perspectives and support the work of their fellow interns.

We seek applicants who are creative and highly enthusiastic about this work and these topics.  We seek students who are invested in developing a community in which we challenge each other to grow, and hold one another accountable, through reflection, dialogue and action.

The GenEq Internship Program offers an opportunity for UC Berkeley students to build upon their leadership skills creating programs, resources and initiatives that seek to create a more welcoming and inclusive campus. Our approach to addressing topics of gender and sexuality is  intersectional and encourages students to strive for creating space and place that resists exclusion while expanding notions of inclusion.

3) Advising Hold

Advising Hold

Don’t Wait!

If you are currently declared as a Legal Studies major and not on the Sp 18 or Su18 degree lists, there is an automatic hold placed on your registration. You need to come in.
The hold is there to prompt students to get major advising once a semester before registering for classes for the following term.

Please come by now, during my drop in hours (8:30-12 and 1:30-4 unless I send out a message about a change in my office hours.
Come in before registration begins on April 16th.

ONLY students who are abroad, at UCDC or are being readmitted for Fa18 may e-mail me regarding the hold.

When you come in, please check to see if I have someone in my office by waving or catching my eye, then please wait out in the lobby if I’m with someone.
Please let’s keep our meeting brief and to the point.

Once registration begins, those who wait until the last minute will often find a queue of students.
I don’t want you to have to wait in line.
Please don’t wait until the last minute and then stress out, that’s not good for anyone.

I’ve already seen 85 of you so thank you very much!
There are about 115 more of you who need to come in, so let’s get going! 😉
