Students who want to do the SHARPP Advocacy Training have 3 options:
Students can take the SHARPP Advocacy Training for credit, under the PSYC 595 Independent Study with Vicki (where they do some additional academic work). Click here to download PSYC 595 packet
Students can take the SHARPP Advocacy Training NOT for credit in the fall, but use those 40 hrs of training towards a WS 797 Internship that they register for in the spring. In the spring, students will complete their remaining internship hours by working within the Women’s Studies office (as an intern), attending the Women’s Studies Internship Seminar and continuing to be an advocate for SHARPP (this will fulfill the rest of their needed 150 hrs).
