Fall Interns wanted at the Kennedy Center!

The Kennedy Center Internship Program is a holistic and rigorous professional development program designed to elevate the next generation of leaders in the arts, cultural, and non-profit fields. Kennedy Center Interns spend a significant amount of their time at the Kennedy Center in individual placements, gaining valuable work experience and technical skills in their chosen field. Additionally, Kennedy Center interns spend 5-10 hours each week participating in the various components of the Kennedy Center Internships curriculum in order to increase leadership potential and fluency in the non-profit and cultural sectors.

THE MINOR IN ARTS LEADERSHIP provides students with the opportunity to acquire

New Humanities, Health, and Medicine Minor
This minor engages students in an interdisciplinary curriculum that applies the methods, perspectives, and insights, of the arts and humanities to health and medical education as well as practice. Through an exploration of human health and medicine using the interdisciplinary questions and research methods of literacy and cultural studies, as well as the arts, philosophy, communication, and history, the minor aims to develop and nurture skills such as empathy, ethical understanding, socio-cultural analysis, self-reflection, and an appreciation of diversity and inclusion that are essential for humane and effective medical care as well as sound health policy. This minor is open to all undergraduate students on campus, regardless or major.

New Scholars Fall Class: Infrastructure and Society
CPSP 349T (3 credit, Scholarship and Practice): Fall 2019

 Contact Dr. David Tomblin for more information and permission to enroll:
One of the most important, but under appreciated, aspects of our society is its infrastructure (roads, buildings, communication systems, water delivery systems, sanitation systems, energy systems, etc.). We often take for granted the services this infrastructure provide for maintaining a sustainable society. This service learning course is designed to emphasize the importance of maintaining infrastructure viability for a functioning society. You will work with professional engineers from a variety of disciplines to learn vital technical assessment skills for evaluating the safety and viability of various aspects of our infrastructure. These engineers work through the Maryland Defense Force (, a volunteer corps that provides vital services for free beyond their professional obligations to help maintain Maryland’s infrastructure. This 3-credit course meets on Tuesdays and Thursdays (3:30-4:45) and includes a couple Saturday excursions (you will not have regular class on Thursdays these weeks).
