SABRs: Social and Behavioral Representatives
The College of Social and Behavioral Sciences (CSBS) offers an innovative internship program known as SABRs. SABRs stands for Social and Behavioral Representatives. The students who have been selected to serve in the SABRs program work directly with the CSBS Dean and Associate Dean to promote college-related programs and serve as ambassadors to prospective students and external constituents.
For example, students serving in SABRs attend college recruitment events on campus, conduct occasional tours, meet with CSBS alumni, and represent the college at administrative events like presidential lunches. SABRs also work with our college marketing and promotions team to create and evaluate publicity materials. If there is a way to improve CSBS, SABRs is a part of it.
The SABRs program began in fall 2013. Currently ten CSBS undergraduate students compose the initial team. These ten SABRs represent academic programs from across the college, but they work together to promote all of our majors.
In addition to bragging rights and stylish CSBS apparel, each of the SABRs has the ability to earn an internship notation on her or his official college transcript. (This internship notation does not result in college course credit, but it does provide evidence to potential employers and graduate schools that the student has completed a 50-hour internship position with the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences.)
CSBS is not currently taking applications for this internship position. Please check for an updated call for applicants in late March 2014.
If you have any questions about this group, feel free to contact Dr. Richard Featherstone, Interim Associate Dean for the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences. His email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org.
