The ASUW Women’s Action Commission is one of eight diversity commissions founded by the Associated Students of the University of Washington. Each commission has a mandate to put on educational programs each quarter, as well as serve and advocate for its constituency within the student government and the administration. The WAC seeks a social justice framework that recognizes and affirms the multiple and intersecting identities held by woman-identified and/or female-identified-at-birth constituents. For our more detailed mission and vision statements, visit http://women.asuw.org/about/.
Students of all gender identities, races, classes, sexual orientations, minds and bodies are encouraged to apply.
For all intern positions, there will be a 2 - 5 hour weekly time commitment (hours will vary based upon need) that includes the weekly 1-hr WAC meeting. The commission will work to schedule around interns’ personal and academic availabilities. In addition to the tasks specified below, interns [and volunteers] will have the opportunity to provide critiques and feedback, plan and execute existing programming and initiate their own programs/projects.
The commission director will practice consistent communication and transparency with all interns and volunteers. Each weekly meeting will be a space where the director will report programming and advocacy updates.
Though these internships are unpaid, the WAC emphasizes the value of these internship positions. They will provide interns concrete skills, professional/organizing experience, networking and community building opportunities. Beyond these concrete benefits, the WAC aims to push their internship positions to be spaces of radical learning (and unlearning!), healing, and celebration.
The QSC is now hiring interns!
The Queer Student Commission is one the eight diversity commissions founded by the Associated Students at the University of Washington. Each commission has a mandate to put on education programs each quarter, as well as serve and advocate for its constituency within the student government and the administration. The QSC seeks to put on programming within an anti-oppressive framework, focusing on planning events that are all at once nonhetero- and cisnormative, anti-racist, anti-ableist, and anti-sexist. You can read our mission statement and more at http://qsc.asuw.org/about/.
And now we're asking that you become a part of the QSC and working to create spaces and events for queer students. The QSC is hiring interns who would have a big involvement in the planning of all events and programming the QSC puts on. There's asked a 2-6 hour commitment per week including the weekly meetings on Wednesday from 6-7, varying depending on the busyness of the week. These internships are, sadly, unpaid, but they are extremely valuable both in the learning potential and their value to the campus community as well as their potential for networking.
Students of all gender identities, races, classes, sexual orientations, minds and bodies are encouraged to apply here.

UCDS Resident Program: Our Support for Faculty New to Teaching
The Resident Teacher Program offers a year-long, intensive, hands-on teaching experience. The Program allows professionals who enter the field to engage in teaching and school-wide responsibilities with the guidance and support of experienced teachers.
Program components include:
- In classroom teaching experience
- Mentoring from experienced teachers
- Professional development workshops
- Resident meetings as a forum for support and encouragement from peers as well as well as reviewing teaching theory and practice
Resident Teachers work full time in a classroom for one school year. They join the faculty in mid-August, starting with a week-long college level math course. During the next week they begin the partnership with their mentor teacher and other teachers on their level team to prepare for the beginning of the school year. From the start, Residents are included in all planning, preparation, discussion, and curricular decisions with their teaching teams. The focus on collaboration and teamwork is at the heart of the school's culture..
Residents work with teachers at all grade levels, serve on faculty committees, and help plan school-wide projects. Our focus on teamwork demands collegial, highly professional working relationships.
Teaching at UCDS is individualized and responsive to the talents of each student. The curriculum is emergent; themes are built around the strengths, interests and questions of the students. The education is dynamic, exciting, relevant and useful. Classrooms are multi-age; children in each classroom work at different levels, set individualized goals, take academic risks, and mentor each other. Residents are an integral part of this innovation. They bring new ideas and educational theories to school discussions, enriching not only their own experience but also the experience of the entire school community.
The Resident Program provides a multi-layered support network. Residents meet regularly with the Resident Coordinators and weekly with their mentor teacher(s). In addition, the Resident Coordinators host Resident Meetings three times a month. Residents are encouraged to share ideas, ask questions and gather support from their fellow residents and guidance from the Resident Coordinators. The Resident Coordinators set a calendar of topics that center on professional development and also parallel the educational developments of students during the school year. In a typical year, Residents will have meetings concerning various topics, which may include:
- Workshops on learning theory, narrative report writing and understanding children's motivation and behavior..
- Readings and discussion of topical articles from national publications.
- Workshops on Visual Thinking Strategies designed to support thoughtful facilitation, active listening and open-ended questioning.
- A year-end retreat designed to synthesize the year's experiences and set the course for continued professional growth.
In addition to meetings specific to Residents, the professional development opportunities available to the faculty and staff through the Teacher Education Center are offered to Residents as well. Each year, Residents attend the annual UCDS Summer Math Workshop, the PNAIS fall conference, and all in-service days and faculty meetings.
