Meet Injustice Watch’s 2016 summer interns

Print

Injustice Watch is pleased to announce a partnership under which programs through the University of Chicago will fund four interns to take part in our summer internship program.

The Harris School of Public Policy is providing support for two graduate students to work as interns through a generous donation from Syed and Laura Doha. The cooperative effort is designed to help students take part in combining data analysis and research with innovative means of raising public awareness of systemic problems through journalism.

In addition, the University of Chicago Institute of Politics is providing support for two additional interns, both undergraduates, with an interest in public affairs and social justice.

The four interns will join a group of additional interns to form a team that, we expect, will enable us to undertake broad research into issues of social injustice, as well as to mentor the students in conceiving and accomplishing original research exposing systemic societal problems. Injustice Watch greatly appreciates the University’s willingness to enter into this partnership.
