INTERNSHIP IN UGANDA
The internship is the product of a joint partnership with Pacific and the Uganda Bureau of Statistics facilitated by Pacific's director of the School of International Studies Bill Herrin and Health, Exercise, and Sport Sciences professor Courtney Jensen. Since 2016, Pacific has sent students to work at UBOS to help with research both for the bureau and for projects the professors are working on in the United States.
The internship provides unique cultural workplace exposure, which according to Herrin, is one of the most rewarding and fulfilling experiences that the students gain while abroad. It is a chance to think critically, take initiative and to fine-tune their ability to alter the lens through which students evaluate and adapt both to their own culture and cultures abroad.
