**PLEASE NOTE THIS INTERNSHIP IS ONLY AVAILABLE TO STUDENTS ATTENDING AN AICUP SCHOOL.**
The Association of Independent Colleges and Universities of Pennsylvania (AICUP) is a nonprofit dedicated to the promotion and support of its 93 independent, nonprofit member colleges and universities. The organization has several main functions including advocacy, communications, efficiencies, and research.
For this internship, we are looking for a student from one of our member schools who is focusing on communications and/or advocacy work in their studies. This may include majors in Communications, Graphic Design, Marketing, Political Science, Government Relations, Social Justice, etc. This internship will provide an opportunity to work with staff at AICUP to promote our member schools with state legislators and the community. The selected intern will work closely with our Vice President for Government Relations and our Manager of Communications to do everything from create social media campaigns to lobbying on the Hill to helping run our AICUP Advocacy Week in April. We are asking for a minimum of 15 hours per week (though more may be possible for the right candidate), and are flexible on what days and times (week days preferred). Position can start as early as January and will run through the beginning of May. For more information about AICUP, please visit our website at www.aicup.org.
End Result – Leave the internship with a portfolio of social media campaigns that you have designed and implemented, complete with metrics and impact numbers. Additionally, gain valuable skills in advocacy (meet some members of the PA State House and Senate!) and in event planning. You never know where those types of connections can take you in the future!
