The Sara Miller McCune Endowed Internship and Public Service Program is a year-long service-learning program for civic-minded 3rd and 4th year UCSB undergraduate students that brings students and community partners together for personal and social transformation. It provides students with opportunities to engage effectively with the local community on issues such as socioeconomic inequities, education, the environment, immigration, and more. This model of university-community partnership creates opportunities for students to connect their classroom learning with community service, translating theory into real-world experience. Local organizations benefit from the support of energetic, talented students who help them to meet their goals and fulfill their missions more effectively. The Sara Miller McCune Endowed Internship and Public Service Program fosters enriched learning through ethical collaborations that enable students to join with our local community in promoting equity and social change.
