Center for Social Justice Graduate Interns (JGIs)
The Center for Social Justice Research, Teaching, and Service (CSJ) seeks Georgetown University Master’s level graduate students to serve as Justice Graduate Interns. These are non-Union positions.
Graduate students serving as CSJ JGIs participate in an academic year-long professional development program in “Engaged Scholarship.” JGIs have meetings once a month as a cohort to develop additional skills around ethical community engagement, social justice leadership, engaged scholarship, and program/project management. The program includes mentorship and opportunities for additional professional development. JGIs are invited to use the full resources of the Center, including the conference room, supply closet, Commons workspace, and kitchen. Each JGI is assigned a locker in the CSJ for their use.
CSJ collaborates with diverse campus and community partners in its mission to promote and integrate community-based research, teaching, and service into the co-curricular life of the University. CSJ acts as a hub through which students, faculty, and staff engage in work on the social justice spectrum including activism, advocacy, community-based learning and research, community service, volunteerism and leadership. CSJ offers over 100 programs each year; nearly 200 students each semester use their Federal Work Study allocation towards a CSJ community engagement position while approximately 1,500 undergraduates have some interaction with CSJ each semester. Through CSJ’s work, Georgetown University upholds its mission of social justice and its commitment to the common good. A Master’s level graduate student can work no more than 20 hours/week – in all campus employment combined – when classes are in session. A CSJ JGI typically works on average of 15 hours/week.
