LGBTQA+ Identities, Ally Toolkit Part 1:
Offered Two Times This Spring: W 2/8, 11a-1p, SAC 2.120 OR Tu 3/28, 2-4p, MEZ 2.124
In this intersectional workshop for LGBTQA+ and non-LGBTQA+ identified people, you will learn and practice a series of vocabulary tools for your support of LGBTQA+ justice in your classrooms, offices, and conversations. You will learn and practice describing the differences between assigned sex, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, and romantic orientation; you will reflect on your own identities. You will practice identifying – and enacting bystander intervention in – microaggressions around gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, and romantic orientation. And you will set your intention for inclusive language (including pronouns) for your communities. You will also learn about existing and necessary campus resources for LGBTQA+ people. Attend this workshop on its own or continue on to Practicing Allyship (Ally Toolkit Part 2) with the option to join Allies in Action. LGBTQA+ Identities (Ally Toolkit Part 1) is a prerequisite for Practicing Allyship (Ally Toolkit Part 2).

Practicing Allyship, Ally Toolkit Part 2:
Offered Two Times This Spring: Tu 4/25, 2-4p, MEZ 2.124 OR W 5/10, 11a-1p, SAC 2.120
*Prerequisite: LGBTQA+ Identities (Ally Toolkit Part 1)
In this workshop for LGBTQA+, straight, and cisgender people (and people whose identities overlap), you will learn and practice interrupting systemic oppression of LGBTQA+ people in your classrooms, offices, and conversations. You will learn about and practice identifying how multiple systems of oppression (including racism, ableism, classism, and sexism) overlap with heterosexism and cisgenderism on our campus. You will reflect on your own social identities, your relationship with systems of oppression, and your roles in interrupting oppression to make campus safer and more welcoming for all LGBTQA+ communities. At the end of this workshop, you will have the opportunity to sign the Ally Program Pledge and receive the Ally Card. Note: This workshop is available only for people who self-select or volunteer to attend. If you supervise someone whom you would like to see build their familiarity with LGBTQA+ terms and concepts, please advise them to attend the LGBTQA+ Identities (Ally Toolkit Part 1) workshop.

Spring 2017 IE Pre-Graduate School Internship Course Registration

Dear UT Undergraduates:

EVEN THOUGH THE FIRST UT REGISTRATION PERIOD ENDED, YOU MAY STILL SUBMIT A SPRING 2017 PRE GRAD INTERNSHIP CONTRACT (AND THEN REGISTER DURING A LATER ACCESS PERIOD) UP TO THE 4TH CLASS DAY.  Obviously, we would like to receive most contracts sooner rather than later.

Please read below.
__

Are you thinking about whether graduate school is in your future?  Are you uncertain about what it would be like to be a graduate student and what academic program may be suited best to your interests and career goals?

If your answer to these questions is yes, you may wish to consider undertaking the Intellectual Entrepreneurship (IE) “Pre-Graduate School Internship.”  This internship is open to students in all UT colleges/schools and departments.  You may earn one, two or three hours of academic credit (CMS 164M/264M/364M) by participating in the internship.

You may read more about this program (including FAQ’s, examples of internship activities and an easy to complete internship contract) on the web:
http://communication.utexas.edu/ie/

You may also be eligible for a Kuhn Intellectual Entrepreneurship Award.  This award is designed to encourage both first generation and economically disadvantaged undergraduate students to pursue their academic passions and to seriously consider graduate study.

The awards will be in the form of $1,000 stipends offered to a select number of qualified undergraduate interns. The award is intended to support and encourage students to pursue opportunities that further enrich the Pre-Graduate School Internship experience. (e.g., traveling to conferences, potential graduate school visits, research endeavors, supplies, books etc.)

In addition, each intern’s graduate mentor will be awarded a matching $1,000 stipend through the Division of Diversity and Community Engagement.  For more information about this award, please go to:

http://communication.utexas.edu/ie/kuhn-ie-award

If after examining these materials you have questions, please feel free to contact me at: cherwitz@austin.utexas.edu

NOTE: Because of the generosity of several UT deans, undergraduates who do their pre-grad internship in programs in the following colleges will be eligible to receive travel grants to help cover part of the cost of attending an academic conference (with their grad mentor)– Law, Public Affairs, Communication, Nursing, Information, Architecture, Liberal Arts, Pharmacy, Business, Social Work, Education, Natural Sciences, Fine Arts.

Sincerely,

Rick Cherwitz
Professor and IE Director
