Internships With the Kissinger Institute on China and the United States
The Kissinger Institute at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars seeks an intern each semester with an interest in, coursework related to, and/or experience working on China and the United States. These internships are designed to provide the individuals selected with the opportunity for practical experience in an environment that successfully mixes academic study with public policy.
American Enterprise Institute Executive Council Program
Croft senior Connor Holeman is the Chair of the Ole Miss American Enterprise Institute Executive Council, and she invites her fellow students to consider getting involved. The American Enterprise Institute, a nonpartisan think tank in Washington DC, is establishing its Executive Council program at the University of Mississippi. There are Executive Council programs on over 80 campuses throughout the country. This chapter will be the first in Mississippi! The program connects students with scholars on subjects like the economy, foreign policy, and political science. It promotes the competition of ideas and enhances discussion through events like visiting scholars and public officials, debates, paid opportunities in Washington DC, connections with AEI employees, and the possibility of writing for national publications. Here's the link to more information: https://www.aei.org/academic-programs/executive-councils/.
Volunteer with the U.M. Chapter of the Food Recovery Network
Croft junior Connor Holeman is one of the founders of the University of Mississippi chapter of the Food Recovery Network. The Food Recovery Network unites students on college campuses to fight food waste and hunger by recovering perishable food that would otherwise go to waste from their campuses and communities and donating it to people in need. Since the organization was founded, it has helped to recover over 1 million pounds of food to feed more than 800,000 people across the country. The U.M. chapter connects campus dining services with More Than A Meal. Each week, they need students to help prepare and transport food from campus to the More Than A Meal location. If anyone would like to volunteer, email Connor at email@example.com. This is a great opportunity to help make the campus more sustainable and help people in our community.
