Over the last year or so, I’ve been getting this amazing email newsletter from the International Center for Ethics, Justice & Public Life (notice how everything at Brandeis is some sort of center or another? Seriously. Even Volen is the “Volen National Center for Complex Systems”).

Anyways, it kicks ass. As does the Ethics Center website.

Point is, the listserv rocks. But it’s a bitch to be added to. Here’s how you do it:

Interested in an internship in the arts and community?
Have an internship and earn 4 credits this fall!

PAX 92a is now enrolling Sophomores-Seniors:

PAX 92a On-Campus Internship in the Arts, Community, and Social Transformation (TBA)
During this internship, you will work directly with members of the Brandeis faculty, staff and administration. You will take the lead in:
? planning programs and events
? designing and implementing strategies for outreach and audience development
? documenting and assessing programs
? creating Internet resources that synthesize learning

Each intern will contribute to three dynamic Brandeis programs: the Intercultural Residency Series, the Leonard Bernstein Festival of the Creative Arts, and a virtual resource center called Creative Resources for Coexistence and Reconciliation. At the beginning of the semester, we’ll develop individual work plans, balancing your own interests and talents with the needs of these programs. We will meet as a group six times during the semester, but mostly you will be working — sometimes independently, sometimes in teams, and sometimes as members of committees, all around the campus and beyond. You will write six short (1 – 2 pages) papers in response to readings or performances, and produce a final paper or project.

Meeting times will be determined by interns’ schedules. You’ll add the class once you’ve attended an introductory meeting (tbd) and when you’re assigned to a program.

Contact Ingrid Schorr for more information.

    The Ethics Center does really great work. Another listserve that you might want to be on in order to hear about events that most students don’t know about is the Global Brandeis list. Sign up at http://www.brandeis.edu/globalbrandeis/index.html.
