The Washington State University Vancouver Diversity Council student intern works with the Diversity Council Chair and the Diversity Faculty Fellow to assist in developing and implementing Council goals and activities. Interns have the opportunity to explore personal areas of interest related to diversity in higher education.
One Diversity Council Intern is selected to serve the entire academic year, receiving a stipend of up to $3,300 (paid as an hourly wage of $11 per hour). The intern will also earn course credit for his or her service and for completing an independent project each semester.
The current intern is Kay Kuran. Kay is working towards a bachelor's degree in psychology with minors in human development and women's studies, along with a certificate in human services with a case study focus. After earning her undergraduate degree, Kay plans to pursue a Ph.D. in feminist studies or social psychology.
Kay is working with Luz María Gordillo to complete a project on eugenics. Her research interests include the study of effectiveness of sex education programs in the United States, and beneficial services for sexual assault survivors. Kay's hobbies include hiking, camping and gardening.
