Opportunities to mentor a student for the UCGHI PHCOE Summer Work Experience Program

Quick Summary

  • The UC Global Health Institute (UCGHI) Planetary Health Center of Expertise (PHCOE) Summer Work Experience Program (SWEP) is interested in finding new hosts to provide summer experiences for students.

The Summer Work Experience Program was developed by the PHCOE with the goal of helping student fellows gain authentic experience through research and extension opportunities with campus and county-based UC academics.  They match fellows to host organizations or mentors that can provide an informative and supportive work experience in the area of each student's future career goals. Experiences have ranged from working in walnut agriculture, supporting animal welfare rights, and helping to pass legislation to support home businesses.

Mentor host information can be found at the Global Health Institute website.
